There is no plan to grow the economy, we are in deep poo, says Eusebius

Eusebius McKaiser says he did not expect the Mid-Term-Budget Policy Statement by Finance Minister Tito Mboweni to be any better.

However, he says he liked how Mboweni was honest about the country's state of affairs.

He was clear in his top-line message that we spend too much money and our revenue collection is too little.

He has revised 2019 expectations to around 0.5% growth and at the same time, there is nothing in this statement that says to the country: here is my vision let us debate it.
