“Competition in theory leads to the dynamism, growth and innovation.   Of course, here I am not just concerned about growth, but also the levels of participation by various groups.  The South African economy, even at its best of times, turned to be quite exclusionary.  Despite the authorities best endeavours, our economy remains highly concentrated with low levels of dynamism, persistent unemployment, inequality and poverty”
