Abstract

The call by the minister of finance, Trevor Manuel, to review Back Economic Empowerment (BEE) has fuelled similar calls from organisations such as the Democratic Alliance, Solidarity, the Inkatha Freedom Party and the Freedom Front Plus. The author asks what elements of BEE and Affirmative Action need to be reviewed.
