Red Tape and Barriers to Entry

On 20 September, 2016, Patrick Smith spoke at a conference organised by the South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SACCI), French SACCI (FSACCI), and Nortons Inc.  The conference addressed the regulatory dynamics of doing business in South Africa, the costs and consequences of interventions to promote competition, and also addressed regulatory developments in the Southern Africa Region.  Patrick spoke specifically about the implications of recent shifts in policy making, towards greater intervention in attempts to promote competition, what economic challenges this gave rise to, and what were the implications and opportunities for consumers, firms, and the wider economy
