Yes I do
Any initiatives that promote the free market, less regulation and less government interference in the economy should be supported. I don't think this proposal goes far enough, however it is a start
Sam
Yes I do
Although not perfect this policy paper contains a number of great ideas. There is still along way to go and corruption needs to stop everywhere. Also Pension funds should not be touched by government and the NHI should not be forced on anyone. The government also needs to work on getting more visa free tourist options for its citizens to be able to travel when we welcome so many others into our country visa free.

yes i fully support this. Tito knows what to do and how to do it. Tito, Thabo Mbeki and Trevor broke the all time record of consecutive economical growth in SA. i lost track after when the his 33 quarters.

I studied economics post graduate level, and these policies are they only way to break the downward spiral.

as Margeret Thatcher said "the problem with socialism is, that you will run out of other people's money". this is where we are today. a very small minority support the masses. its not sustainable. and forget Cosato. NUMSA stood as a political party and only get 20K votes. why should a very small minority communists dictates out country??

This policy does not go nearly far enough, but it has some positive points. The South African economy will not recover until such time as the ANC commits unambiguously to scrapping EWC in its entirety, along with dumping onerous labour laws and BEE in all its forms. (Social engineering *does not work* - the ANC should have learned this by now.) Until such time as the ANC develops the balls to stand up to the unions, South Africa is doomed. DO IT ***NOW***!

Any planning document is better than no plan!

and can those with a plan be allowed to promote it/discuss it etc and not be continuously stifled by those who need to justify their existence and salary - such as the Cosatu "no longer relevant mockery of a leadership"

Although not perfect this policy paper contains a number of great ideas and is an encouraging move away from the usual communist / socialist inspired wishlists.

It only looks at enriching the political bodies and the same people called investors, this plan is not for us the ones facing hardships in this Country. People are being fooled to think that this system cares for us, but honestly it cares more for those who have ? power.

These must not only be for bbee companies but for all small companies . Scrap bbee let market forces rule . Bring back genuine training for apprentices . Scrap Sitas they are not performing . The small business financing has too much red tape . The policy has being set but there is no action plan with accountability and deadlines . Someone must monitor and control , this is not happening . Export councils must be supported actively no lip service

Tito at least is realistic. The Escom cash cow needs to stop, assets sold, staff retrenched. So do all government businesses. Get rid of them, u dont know how to run them.
Then there will be funds to put this country back on track. Green energy for a start run by private companies capable of creating jobs and better infrastructure so people can drink clean water, and put sewerage back where it belongs and not in the rivers, dams and streets. Start fining people who throw rubbish everywhere. Pay poor people for each load of rubbish collected. Clean up this country! Lots of SMEs can spring up and create jobs. Enough of we cant. We have to!

It will assist the marginalised majority of the citizens in the country and stimulate the economy.

1. Our country requires quality education for all the children of its citizens - a well developed human capital.
2. The Act is intended to secretly privatise Eskom and other State Owned Enterprises and in the process give them to a few Black Families including the President who wants the section that generates energy. This is a process of unbundling which will leave the citizens with no voice over the utilization of the tac payers' monies. NO TO THE BILL
Elize
Yes I do
If this include all races in SA
Bruce
Yes I do
This plan contains many useful, market friendly ideas.
Deena
Not fully
Government must focus..... Root out the corruption and the people behind bars and then introduce Ker-Ching to the people to become entrepreneurs thereby keeping the wealth in our country thus improving our economy. Ker-Ching is the way to go although it is still under construction for pre launch. Thanks.
mandisa
Yes I do
The stagnant economy has no benefits for the future of our children and our investment. This is greatly welcomed to stimulate the economy further
Melusi
Yes I do
This must be implemented for the greater good of our economy.
Floris
