Some Economic Factors for Accelerated Development in Southern Africa

  • Marcus Arkin


The nominal scope of this paper is both vague and vast, but two circumstances help to limit its range. The first is the formal draft programme, which allocates — quite rightly — the agricultural aspects of economic development to highly qualified specialists, and devotes a whole separate section to the external (or international) facets of the topic — the impact of foreign investment, trade and assistance. The second is the author’s own ignorance of economic patterns, problems and prospects beyond South Africa itself, so that my remarks will refer mainly to the Republic rather than to the broader region of ‘Southern Africa’.
