The article examines the shift in the post-apartheid government's economic policy from its reconstruction and development programme to its growth, employment and redistribution policy. It argues that this move towards a more neo-liberal paradigm reflects the growing reflection of the state's incapacity. The paper reviews the delivery on promises made by the post-apartheid government after the April 1994 elections and analyses the reasons for its lack of capacity. Lastly, it appraises the potential for a South African developmental state.
