The WC: what kind of legacy and for whom? The arguments presented are hardly new in the South African context and reminiscent of the debates that encircled the developmental path of the country that followed the demise of the apartheid state in the early s. With the era of socialism buried under the rubble of the dismantled Berlin Wall, policy makers in South Africa as all over the world were busy reconstructing new spaces under the auspices of capitalism and the macroeconomic principles of neoliberalism.
The limited knowledge of what went into the original World Cup bid including that submitted for the World Cup and top-down modus operandi adopted to implement preparations on the ground, harks back to the times when GEAR was imposed as a set of non-negotiable macro objectives in Intended to steer the South African economy to prosperity, GEAR — whilst pleasing to the international community and successful in maintaining overall macro stability without the major boom-bust cycles the economy was suffering from in preceding years — not only curtailed some of the poverty alleviation objectives it professed, but also restricted economic growth to a level that was likely to have insignificant impact on prevailing levels of unemployment, inequality and poverty.
The same is also being said about the World Cup today. As such, careful consideration as to what infrastructure developments should be considered as actual legacy projects is key in determining the real socio-economic value of the tournament to the majority of the population. Is it therefore an overstatement to assert that the World Cup is indeed a catalyst for growth?
The age-old adage of what is growth and who are its beneficiaries is an obvious concern for the contributors of the book, as it is to the government.
