Department's research featured in University publication

Three studies undertaking by Economics Department researchers are featured in the latest Research at Stellenbosch University 2014 publication.

The first study, by Neil Rankin, investigates youth employment in South Africa. It shows that many young people lack work experience or other signals which can help employers identify their productivity.

A third study, by Johan Fourie and Dieter von Fintel, shows how French Huguenots maintained an advantage in wine-making for nearly a century after their arrival at the Cape in 1688.
