Abstract:In this book, which incorporates some of the findings of a workshop held under the auspices of the Economic Policy Research Project, University of the Western Cape, South Africa, in February 1991, a group of academic economists present a number of avenues which they believe will lead to redistribution of income and wealth. They consider that income redistribution from rich to poor is morally desirable and, in the South African case, politically necessary in order to achieve a stable and democratic society. The book consists of the following chapters: 1. Microeconomic redistributive stategies in developing countries, by T. Moll; 2. Macroeconomic redistributive packages in developing countries, by T. Moll; 3. A tax strategy for redistribution, by L.J. Loots; 4. Deficit financing and redistribution in South Africa, by B. Kahn; 5. Redirecting government expenditure, by S. Van der Berg; 6. Making welfare spending work, by N. Nattrass and A. Roux; 7 Options for employment creation, by A. Roux; and 8. Conclusion: what redistributes and what doesn't, by P.G. Moll.
