Podcast: Dawie Roodt Debates Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene's Budget Speech with Christopher Malikane
Dawie Roodt, co-author of Tax, Lies and Red Tape, debated the recent budget speech with Christopher Malikane, professor of Economics at Wits University, on Xolani Gwala’s Talk Radio 702 show recently.
Roodt, who is also director and chief economist of Efficient Group, says Finance Minister Nhlahla Nene’s budget is “a budget of optimism”, and is lacking in transparency. Roodt calculates that debt will rise, and that South Africa is likely to face another ratings downgrade in the next financial year.
