Prof Andrew Phiri

Macroeconomics, financial, international and applied economics are Prof Phiri’s research areas.  He focuses interdisciplinary on key issues in the South African economy such as high unemployment, low growth, high capital mobility, fiscal instability, exchange rate instability and environmental degradation.  His research demonstrates how choice and sophistication of econometric modelling is paramount to gaining deeper empirical understanding of key economic issues.

As is the case with mankind, it is really doubtful that any economy can truly prosper without being highly sacrificial.
