"This compelling book demonstrates empirically and theoretically how barriers to entry into South African markets protect incumbents, exclude entrants (including the historically disadvantaged black population), and undermine the very legitimacy of South Africa's market economy and post-apartheid social compact. The authors offer an agenda to meet the urgent challenge." Eleanor Fox, Walter J. Derenberg Professor of Trade Regulation at New York University School of Law
