Pondering the minutiae of the Economic Recovery Plan is a waste of time – Leon Louw

Do not waste time pondering the minutiae of Ramaphosa’s Economic Reconstruction and Recovery Plan (ERRP). There is only one way to create wealth for all: freedom from anti-growth spending, controls and taxes. The ERRP must be judged by how well it measures up.

The only way to know that is to see where it will take the country on the annual Economic Freedom of the World Index (EFW) (here). This is the internationally recognised measure of the extent to which economic systems are free or unfree. The world’s experience shows that if you move up the Index and become more free, even if you start low, you prosper. If you move down, even if you start high, you stagnate.
