With all the media coverage of “The Spear” painting last week, government’s Constitutional Court appeal against the interdict that has temporarily halted the e-toll project did not receive much air time. Minister Gordhan has also been saying that the government is exploring alternatives to funding the Gauteng road improvements. With the story rolling on, I thought that I should post a few views:
- My own bit on the School’s blog: Ask an economist.
- The radio interview that I did with the radio journalism students last week: Here is the one with Bianca.
- And Tim Harford’s arguments in favour of road pricing in the UK: Congestion tax is the way to go.
