A new high-powered television programme that focuses on the interplay of influence between government and business. The people, issues and trends shaping South Africa’s economy. Each week top decision-makers and influential power brokers are interviewed by Tim Modise on their plans and ideas to address the country’s economic situation. An influential platform where the Who’s Who of business and politics rise to the challenge of sorting out South Africa’s economic malaise. Political Currency with Tim Modise seeks insight on the policies and ideas that could kick-start economic recovery, create jobs and set South Africa on the road to prosperity.

This week:

Part 1 - The government’s management of the mining & energy sectors have received much criticism over the past few years, with business citing bureaucracy, inefficiency and extreme regulations as inhibitors to local and foreign investment. On Political Currency this week, Tim Modise talks to Mineral Resources and Energy Minister, Gwede Mantashe, about the contribution from these two key sectors in turning around South Africa’s declining economy.

Part 2 - In The Editors this week, Business Day Editor Lukanyo Mnyanda and BusinessLive mining specialist Allan Seccombe talk to Tim Modise about union wage demands for public service workers, as well as the never-ending vaccines roll-out spectacle and the slow pace of regulation relaxation and issuing of new permits in the mining sector.
