Good points. Practically as I see it there are a few issues; overall "government" debt (SOE's, government and municipalities is at very high levels and increasing. Ditto for unemployment and without any solutions in sight. The green shoots of agriculture could disappear with weather and EWC. Mining is ho hum, particularly without reliable power. Tourism (and many service industries) is in trouble with covid and no vaccine, let alone stifling ANC policies. So per capita GDP continues to decline; we are getting poorer.Ps. Don’t mistake short term optimism.. longer term changes need to happen and SA hasn’t done any of it for a long time while politics is our favorite sport. Unless that changes back to being boring and predictable(for the better) it’s still longer term bad. Ie when Cyril has to go.. or maybe he will play 2nd fiddle to bring stability for a 3rd term?
Quite a bit of Cyril talk, talk; little action, no changes. Not a good prognosis for SA and the ZAR.
