Workingman's Blues ... Piet Croucamp

"Government has to sell and people have to buy into The National Development Plan (NDP)or the Vision 2030 for South Africa,"  is the view of Dr Piet Croucamp from UJ. We chatted to Piet on the iStart2 Show about the quantification of social concepts and the measurability of social cohesion within the framework of the NDP. He also shared his views on the legacy of Nelson Mandela and how we as South Africans could sustain this treasure.

Piet Croucamp teaches at the Department of Politics at the University of Johannesburg. Great energy and inspiring insights from a man who isn't scared to challenge the status quo and conventional wisdom in politics or religion.

After the interview I realized once again that we all need to come to a crucial understanding that we cannot wait for political parties or someone else to "write a new story for the country". Everyone of us has a responsibility to start creating those story lines and a future with a "happy ending" for the children of our children. The time to do is now!
