FMF NEWSLETTER 6 JULY 2017
Dear friend of the FMF
This week’s feature article by Dr. Gerrit Sandrock addresses the concept of Radical Economic Transformation (RET) and what needs to be done if we are serious about achieving change. While much has been said about RET, nothing concrete has been done; words will not suffice to bring about real change for poorer South Africans. Dr. Sandrock proposes practical, eminently achievable, steps that need to be carried out and describes the serious work required to do away with the excessive regulation that hinders and slows economic growth and delays positive change.
Radical economic transformation hobbled by intrusive and excessive regulation – DR GERRIT SANDROCK
The South African insurance industry is an Oligopoly. That is, a market structure similar to a monopoly, but in which a small number of companies has the majority of market share.
This is not the creation of faceless “white monopoly capital”. It is an entirely predictable response to the intrusive and extensive overreach of muddled Government agencies in their quest for control of the industry. Through its regulatory exuberance, the State has curtailed industry growth, and thus capital and job creation.
