decolonial perspectives on political economy and corruption
"This book examines the detrimental impact of illicit financial flows on South Africa's development, political economy and transformation in the twenty-first century. Over the years, illicit financial flows have led to the systematic looting and channelling away of South African resources, yet it is rarely studied by researchers looking to explain the country's underdevelopment and political economy. This book looks across sectors, showing that illicit financial flows cut across all the key pillars of development, frustrating the betterment of peoples' lives in South Africa. Investigating the problem from a decolonial perspective, the book delves deep into the catastrophic impacts of illicit financial flows for people and the economy, discusses how the problem is being combatted, and ultimately suggests solutions for rebuilding social trust between people and the state. Making an important contribution to the decolonial debate, as well as to discussions of South Africa's political economy, this book will be of interest to researchers across African Studies, Global Development, Political Science, Law and Corruption Studies"--, Provided by publisher
