SANE New Economics Education course

The South African New Economics (SANE) Network will be hosting its second residential course on New Economics. As last year, it will be at the Grail Centre in Kleinmond - cottages set among trees in the beautiful fynbos reserve. It will start on the evening of Sunday November 12th and end after lunch on Thursday the 16th.

The course is intended to bring together students and teachers of political economy, as well as development policy makers. It will add to the network of economists working for practical change in South Africa.

Thirty years of global, national and local programmes to end poverty have been largely ineffective, because they are systematically undermined by the macro-economic context. How and why does this happen?

You might sum up by asking - why does the economy - worldwide as well as in South Africa - do the opposite of what the theory of the free market says it should?

These questions are the starting point of this participative course. Resource people will include SANE's staff, plus Neville Alexander, Margaret Legum, Elroy Paulus, Jeremy Wakeford, Zunaid Moolla, Norman Reynolds and Maieane Nkhahle.

Book early to avoid disappointment. Closing date for reservations is 1st November 2006.
