As a result, the continuing inequality in wealth and power has resulted in citizens being frustrated at not being heard which has led to populist political and economic rhetoric promising social reform.

Stephen Grootes spoke to Clement Chinaka, Managing Director at Old Mutual Corporate on how this has progressed in the past 9 years, since the 2008 global financial crisis, as well as what needs to change.
