An examination of the effects of major political change on stock market volatility: the South African experience
AbstractPrior to President de Klerk's historic announcement on February 2 1990 of fundamental political change, South Africa was the subject of extreme economic and political isolation. As a result of this announcement, it would be expected that South Africa's financial markets transformed from a state of segmentation to a degree of integration in world makets. One means of assessing the possible effects of this major political change is by investigating stock market volatility.
