Key Issues in the Assessment of Seta Performance in South Africa’s National Skills Development Strategy


  • Sean Archer

    () (SALDRU, School of Economics, University of Cape Town)


One of the most dangerous aspects of the global knowledge-based economy lies in the tensions created by the growing ‘knowledge gap’ between the knowledge-rich countries of the North and the (generally) knowledge-poor countries of the South. Wealth creates the ability to create the knowledge that can be used to create further wealth. But, without adequate means to distribute the benefits accruing from such knowledge, social disparities, and the jealousies they invoke, will only increase. Editorial, Nature 6714, 1999: 1.
