Invitation: Dawie Roodt – ‘Foes, follies and budgetary woes’

Posted on February 10, 2015

Dawie’s career in economic and political analysis spans more than 25 years, including nine years as an economist at the South African Reserve Bank. He was also the economic editor of a financial publication. His first book, Tax, lies and red tape ‒ published in 2013 ‒ was described as a ’fresh, thought-provoking and entertaining look at economics in South Africa’. His academic qualifications include a master’s degree (cum laude) in Economics. Dawie’s interest in economics is not limited to the conventional, and in addition to his formal studies he also studied communism. He was awarded honorary membership of Golden Key International Honour Society in 2012 and is a member of the Institute of Directors of South Africa. Dawie is known for his extensive knowledge of the South African economy, analytical nature and exceptional communication skills. He is highly efficient in presenting complicated economic information in everyday language. Regular television appearances, radio broadcasts and comments in the printed and electronic media have all contributed to making him one of South Africa’s most quoted economists and his achievements in the academic field, broadcasting and public speaking are widely recognised. He also presents lectures on macro-economics to MBA students at the University of Pretoria's Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS).
