This is a website of mostly exploratory and experimental writing where I share thoughts and ideas about my ongoing research about the politics of poverty, inequality and democracy in present-day South Africa and other complicated places.
I hope you find it interesting and useful.
Please comment: though I can’t always respond, I appreciate comments and criticisms. Disagreement is welcome. Boring, rude or off-topic isn’t.
