Emotions are soaring and more money than ever before is finding its way out of the country. Reasons include politics, the unsure future of SA, and the weak performance of the Rand. But who are these few fortunate South Africans who have sufficient money to transfer or invest abroad? Chances are they have put considerable effort into planning, and that property investment has most likely played a substantial role in their success.
Are the rest of us, including the average salary earner concerned about the bad economy, or even conscious about the impact on our future and retirement? Or are we totally exposed to the mercy of circumstance with the only resolution left to hope that matters will improve? I am afraid that most of us are caught up in this very unfortunate position, with nobody to blame but ourselves.
