FMF Alternatives to ANC Policy Proposals at ANC National Policy Conference
The ANC is holding its fifth National Policy Conference from 31 June to 5 July 2017. Delegates will discuss and decide upon ANC policy for the next five years. President Jacob Zuma has set the tone by calling for “radical economic transformation”, which is the underlying theme across all policy discussion documents.

FMF has come out in support of radical economic transformation. However, unlike government and the ANC, the FMF can define what radical transformation would look like: A substantive change from past and current economic policies, to “radical” free markets, that is, less of the same and more of something new.
FMF plans to release 10 media releases before end-June outlining the FMF’s vision for radical economic transformation. Each will include links to submissions and proposals to show South Africa that real economic transformation is not only possible and viable, but desirable for all.
FMF would appreciate it if you would consider an ad hoc donation to this important opportunity to revisit our solutions to South Africa’s many challenges. If you would like to make a donation, please complete the form here.


Dear friend of the FMF

This week’s feature article provides a thorough rejection of pseudo-economic mantras such as nationalisation and the spectre of “white monopoly capital”. Martin van Staden rejects the argument that nationalisation will solve our economic problems and calls for a simple, logical and clear return to basic principles. Marxist theory underpins fallacious positions such as nationalisation and van Staden, in his article, unravels this approach. If we want real economic transformation, he maintains, we cannot continually fall prey to these false arguments.

FEATURE article  

The first step to growth: Reject pseudo-economics – MARTIN VAN STADEN

Murray Rothbard, economist and political philosopher, wrote in an essay that there is nothing wrong with being ignorant of economics, given the science’s specialised and often complex nature. However, Rothbard noted, “it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance.”
