dc.description.abstract Financial markets are rapidly integrating into a single global market place, and developing countries including South Africa, are increasingly part of this process. The process is being driven by both the push and the pull factors in both developed and developing countries. Nevertheless, the overwhelming majority of the developing countries still need to create the conditions to attract long-term capital flows. Although South Africa has been attracting capital flows since the 1990s, the level is not sustainable because it mainly attracts shortterm capital. It has failed to attract long-term capital on a sustainable basis because of economic and political crises facing the country. Thus, the South African government needs to build the kind of macroeconomic, regulatory and institutional environment that channels this private capital into broad - based and sustainable growth. en_US
