White monopoly capital is a boogeyman that has frankly become a ridiculous notion in 2018, only forwarded by parties that still have a racial and class axe to grind.

Many people would be happy to pay taxes if they thought it would contribute to improving the services it is supposed to provide. But being coerced to pay taxes against their own financial best interest make people more likely to exploit any existing loopholes.

When it comes to corruption, the DA is demonstrably more clean than the ANC. At the start of 2018, 80% of Western Cape municipalities, under DA control, registered clean audits.

The problem with general elections is that it makes itself guilty of what economists call the free-rider problem. A person can gain the benefit of something without incurring the costs associated with this.

The ruling ANC is seriously limited in its ability to oppose trade unions, since trade unions can quickly mobilise a large section of their voter base to support or disavow the ANC.

SA seems to be stuck with a system of affirmative action that raises the cost of doing business, benefits only a minority of the people it is intended to benefit and seems to be in place indefinitely.

Expropriating land, forcibly taking someone’s property without fairly compensating them, is theft, even when it is done by the authority of the state.

At the moment, however, the NHI would be a major burden on the state’s revenue, precisely when the state is attempting to fix its debt issue.

The combination of higher oil prices and a weaker rand are placing consumers under severe pressure.

Saftu's proposed minimum wage is wholly unrealistic and even if they could implement it, it would lead to massive job losses.

AfriForum’s prosecution could see justice done where it needs to be done.
