Hi Paul

I have tweeted this, and have sent the idea to a few well placed friends who can add weight. Just one thought: is there a possibility of adding into the idea the creation of "green" jobs. I think there's quite a bit of interest and money that will follow the idea of sustainability jobs.

Came across Jacob Mabena who manufactures wind energy turbines recently. Now this is the direction I would like to see.

I do take issue with one of the points Kevin makes. The idea of tax breaks robbing Treasury and so on. If empowerment does what it is supposed to do, that is make the economy more inclusive and help it grow, then the tax blow can potentially be mitigated by greater economic growth, at least to an extent, surely? And what of the other benefits of a softly nhumming empowerment performance, what price them?

BTW: Didn't Gordhan follow your prescription to an extent already, by offering a tax rebate/subsidy for businesses that employed young people?
