What South Africa may look like in 2030

We’re well on our way to becoming an authoritarian society.

Frans Cronje

We need to get back on the track we were on until about 2007.

Frans Cronje

For his weekly business book review The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed famed scenario planner Frans Cronje about his book “A Time Traveller's Guide to South Africa in 2030”.

Description on Amazon:

What will South Africa look like in 2030?

How will the next 15 years unfold?

South Africa has undergone dramatic change in recent years.

Political tensions are on the up, economic performance has weakened and more and more South Africans are taking their frustrations to the streets.

What does this mean for our future?

Will a spark ignite the powder keg?

In this book, leading scenario planner Frans Cronje analyses the latest trends and presents four brand new scenarios for the country's future.

Will South Africa take the socialist route and allow the state to seize all wealth and land?

Will the status quo prevail, and the wealth divide widen while crime soars?

Do we face a pernicious erosion of our democratic rights and freedoms?

Or will a rainbow rise unexpectedly?

Cronje's new set of scenarios is a sober compass for South Africa's highly unpredictable future.
