A Budget of national government provides a clear snapshot of the conditions of the State. It allows for a forensic analysis of economic policy, the distributional priorities preferred by government and in the specific context of South Africa, of a bridging of the race/class divide that, in turn, may unlock of the vindication of a non-racial, non-sexist society. Regrettably, too much of the pre-Budget debate was consumed with the viability of funding vaccines for some 40 million.
