Aggregate Investment in South Africa: A Model with Implications for Political Reform

Author

  • Fielding, David

Abstract

A small macroeconomic model is used as the basis for estimating the determinants of investment in South Africa within a simultaneous equations framework. Investment is highly sensitive to interest rates, relative prices, and political instability. The policy implications of such sensitivity are outlined. Copyright 1997 by Blackwell Publishing Ltd
