EFF Manifesto confused, would damage economy - LiPSA

Johannesburg, South Africa. LiPSA members have completed a point-by-point analysis of precisely what is wrong with the ideas presented in the EFF manifesto.  It has been published on the LiPSA blog and is accessible here.

In summary, the EFF manifesto contains many ideas for spending money, and many ideas for stealing money, but almost nothing allowing for the creation of wealth.  What few items in the EFF manifesto do make sense are just simple reversals of poor ANC decisions, rather than the product of a coherent policy position.

The EFF manifesto, if implemented, would cause most investment, as well as many rational South Africans, to leave the country as quickly as possible.  It would be preferable to be a refugee in a foreign country than a citizen in an EFF-ed up South Africa.
