Pravin, please Save South Africa. Here's how ...

2016-10-08 15:30

Minister Pravin Gordhan. South Africa is going backward. It is going backward faster and faster. Our children's future is at risk. Grave risk.

Pravin. The time to act is now. You can put South Africa on the path to a Joy Economy for all by 2030.

You have not done so yet. You know we are in trouble. You know something must change. You do not quite seem to know what to change though. You recently described South Africa’s youth unemployment rate of 37% as a national emergency. You said:

“The financial system in South Africa is not necessarily supportive to get young entrepreneurs going”


“As technology, self-driven cars and robots begin to take over the world, where is the normal work going to come from? Society needs to apply its mind to that.”

Well Pravin, the non-profit money4mzansi has applied its mind to these challenges and has produced a plan for South Africa to help you and all our citizens deal with the challenges we face.

Your challenge is that you are tightly wrapped in the Washington consensus straightjacket. It is strangling our country. It is strangling the dreams of our youth to a silent death. Will we face the wrath of our disillusioned youth as they decide to take up the fight against this world that is strangling them? Will you face their wrath?

There is a way out Pravin. It will require courage. Courage to go against the "advice" of the developed world. Courage to go against the "advice" of the world's global governmental and financial institutions.

Many in history have had the courage to do so, and they successfully lead their countries to a better future. They were not economic theorists. They looked at history, they looked at the reality of their countries and the needs of their people, and did what worked. Pragmatists.

Pravin, do you have the pragmatic courage of:

Alexander Hamilton -  he went against the advice of Britain, David Ricardo and Adam Smith to lay the foundations of America's prosperous future.

Otto von Bismarck and Friedrich List - they went against the advice of Britain, David Ricardo and Adam Smith to lay the foundations of Germany's prosperous future.

Lee Kuan Yew - he went against the advice of western governmental bodies, against the doctrine of privatisation above all, and laid the mixed capitalist/socialist foundations of Singapore's prosperous future.

Deng Xiaoping - he of "I do not care if the cat is black or white. What matters is it catches mice.” A pragmatist if ever there was one, he laid the foundations of China's prosperous future. Take courage Pravin. To make things a bit easier for you and the citizens of South Africa,  money4mzansi has prepared a 4 part video series on our plan for South Africa. Here is what we must do: Video 1: shared clarity on how South Africa really works What is money, where does it come from, who creates and destroys it? Video 2: What is broken in South Africa? How did other countries succeed? The Hamiltonian approach to national development. Video 3: Impact of the future on South Africa's present Why we cannot do what the Asian tigers did. Why the NDP is doomed to fail. Video 4: money4mzansi's plan for South Africa

Sovereign money, blockchain, Joy Economy 2030

Pravin, please watch these videos. Watch them with an open mind. Think of our millions of fellow citizens living in shacks and facing the daily struggle of survival. We must implement the change needed to enable our journey to a Joy Economy for South Africa by 2030.

Fellow citizens, Pravin needs our support. The developed world via the WTO, IMF and other institutions will oppose South Africa and the rest of the developing world in following a Hamiltonian approach of national development, even though they all did so themselves. The corrupt in South Africa will oppose the transparency and broad economic activation required to execute money4mzansi’s plan at speed.

Join us and support Pravin and others in government, business and society at large that have the foresight and strength of character to lead us in our joint journey to a Joy Economy for South Africa by 2030.

If you believe we can build a better future together for all of us please:

Join us so we can act together to change what must be changed and implement what must be implemented.

Join us.

Thank you Pravin.
