Transforming the Distributional Regime

Transforming the Distributional Regime

(p.376) Chapter 11 Transforming the Distributional Regime
Class, Race, and Inequality in South Africa

Jeremy Seekings

Yale University Press

This chapter considers what a more egalitarian distributional regime would entail in the South African context. First, it examines how Ireland and the Netherlands expand employment by means of a social accord process. It then evaluates the use of the social accord process to address unemployment in South Africa, arguing that it has to be inclusive of labour-market outsiders. An inclusive social accord in South Africa would need to support high-productivity activities, but not at the cost of slower employment growth overall. The chapter also discusses how to enhance the value of redistribution via the budget in South Africa.
