Abstract

In analyzing the ANC's postapartheid macroeconomic and industrial policies alongside ideologies about the role of states and markets in fostering developmental goals, this paper argues that globalization has had a profound impact on the social policies adopted by the postapartheid state. The impact of globalization has occurred not simply at the level of macroeconomic policy, but also at the level of ideology. When the postapartheid state introduced industrial and macroeconomic reforms designed to attract investment from outside of South Africa's borders, it adopted a way of conceptualizing the relationship between the state, the market, and the global economy that reinforces the hegemony of capitalist globalization. These reforms threaten to entrench apartheid's bitter economic legacy of white development and black underdevelopment.
