What will South Africa look like in 2030? And how will the next fifteen years unfold? South Africa has undergone dramatic change in recent years. Political tensions are on the up, economic performance has weakened, and more and more South Africans are taking their frustrations to the streets. What does this mean for our future? Will a spark ignite the powder keg? In this book, leading scenario planner Frans Cronje analyses the latest trends and presents four brand new scenarios for the country's future. Will South Africa take the socialist route and allow the state to seize all wealth and land? Will the status quo prevail, and the wealth divide widen while crime soars? Do we face a pernicious erosion of our democratic rights and freedoms? Or will a rainbow rise unexpectedly? Cronje's new set of scenarios is a sober compass for South Africa's highly unpredictable future.
