WHAT DOES RADICAL ECONOMIC TRANSFORMATION MEAN?

The reluctant emergence of Cyril Ramaphosa as a candidate for the leadership of the ANC, has been met with a lot of enthusiasm by South African business, made weary by the leadership of President Jacob Zuma and his discredited cabinet. However, Cyril Ramaphosa has already used the populist phrase radical economic transformation, so don't expect this debate to disappear anytime soon.

The EFF seems to think that radical economic transformation is about the state taking control of "the means of production". The new Finance Minister's adviser seems to think that it means a nationalisation of everything and the Democratic Alliance seems to think that it means a lighter, friendlier version of BEE.
