A few weeks ago, PII member and director of UCT’s Development Policy Research Unit, Prof. Haroon Bhorat, gave a presentation at the World Bank’s Africa Economics Seminar series, in Washington D.C., on invitation from the Office of the Chief Economist in the Africa Region. Speaking about "Wage polarisation in a high inequality emerging economy: The case of South Africa", Prof. Bhorat discussed the "missing middle", and shared some of the DPRU research on wage polarisation in South Africa. During his visit, he was interviewed for the World Bank’s Afronomics Podcast series, which focuses on the most recent economic trends that are impacting growth and development on the African continent.
