Our job remains 'to fight on the shop floor and beyond for better wages, humane conditions of work, a shorter work-week, homes close to work, for places to shit in, for care when we are ill and old... for power over what we produce' - #TheEconomyOnYourDoorstep

Ayabonga presents a well-argued, cogent and much-needed intervention that balances the role of the state and private sector in the economy. Reimagining a society that will make economies in Comfivaba, Ga-Mphahlele, Nongoma, Giyani and Dimbaza and those in Mazule’s co-operative in Kwa-Bhaca viable, as Ayabonga puts it.

Our country’s financial and capital markets are lauded by indices the world over but South Africa is also considered to be the most unequal society in the world. Ayabonga Cawe probes the reason for this tragic paradox in South African life, The Economy On Your Doorstep is an exposition of what we see around us and a discussion of possible ways beyond it.
