What should SA be doing to prepare for the “new normal after Covid-19?

That is the overarching question a new book from Jacana Media, Recession, Recovery and Reform: South Africa after Covid-19, seeks to tackle. Edited by prominent economist Raymond Parsons, the book comprises a fascinating collection of essays by some of SA’s top intellectuals and thought-leaders.
