Abstract

In 2007 the Presidency called for a review of second economy strategies1 contained within the national housing programme with particular reference to how it has fared in relation to the so-called 'second economy'. This article draws from that review. The article reflects on the emphasis that policy places on the notion of the housing asset, and argues that while this is useful, it falls short in understanding the nuance of how housing assets perform for different stakeholders - individuals and the public. Within this, the persistence of informal settlements becomes a special challenge that might benefit from an understanding of asset performance. The article considers how state programmes and the intentions of Breaking New Ground have and have not facilitated absorption of the poor into the urban space economy, and what this means for the two-economies debate.


Die Kantoor van die President het in 2007 opdrag gegee vir hersiening van tweedeekonomie strategieë wat in die nasionale behuisingsprogramme vervat is. Spesifieke melding is gemaak van die prestasie van hierdie programme met betrekking tot die sogenaamde 'tweede ekonomie'. Hierdie artikel steun op dié hersiening en reflekteer op die klem wat beleid plaas op die idee van behuising as bate. Die waarde van hierdie benadering word uitgelig. Daar word egter beredeneer dat dit nie die nuanses in prestasie van behuising as bate vir verskillende belangegroepe (individue en die publiek in die algemeen) kan verstaan en verklaar nie. Hiermee saam word die blywende aard van informele nedersettings gesien as 'n spesifieke uitdaging wat voordeel kan trek uit 'n beter begrip van die prestasie van bates. Die artikel oorweeg hoe staatsprogramme en die doelwitte van beleid soos vervat in "Breaking New Ground" die opneem van armes in die stedelik-ruimtelike ekonomie bevorder het, al dan nie, en wat dit vir die debat rondom 'n tweeledige ekonomie beteken.
