Enforcing Competition Rules in South Africa Thieves at the Dinner Table

"This book is about a public policy intervention – in the form of the Competition Act – that has deep roots in this dominant narrative. In particular, it is rooted in the concentration of ownership of private wealth in the hands of a small number of large corporations – for the most part, highly diversified conglomerates – that were in turn controlled by a select group of white families. The perceived counterpoint of this concentration of private wealth and economic power was precisely the dispossession, the poverty, and the unequal and unfair treatment of the majority black population."
