IN CONVERSATION - Iraj Abedian & Rob Davies

Economist Iraj Abedian will be in conversation with Rob Davies about his new book, Towards A New Deal : A Political Economy of the Times of My Life (Jonathan Ball, 2021). In this memoir, Rob Davies looks back on his time in government, which includes the Nkandla scandal and how  tenderpreneurism became rife.

Iraj Abedian is the founder and Chief Executive of Pan-African Investment and Research Services (Pty) Ltd and Chairman of Pan-African Capital Holdings (Pty) Ltd. Towards a New Deal is an excellent memoir of Rob Davies’ many years as South Africa’s Trade and Industry minister.
