Economic Development (ED): Hard Facts about the Soft Truth
THE SOFT TRUTH
After the August 13th review of the REIPP by Liz McDaid (REI4P review) it unfortunately seems as if some ‘soft facts’ are making their way into everyday conversations about Renewable Energy as ‘hard truths’, and with Jeff Rudin’s recent missive in the Daily Maverick Renewable Energy a prisoner of privatisation her one-women crusade to unearth all things nefarious in the REIPP needs to be confronted head-on and dismissed, with the contempt that it deserves – although, to be sure, this situation is not one entirely of her own doing. In an ironic twist, the state is the source of its own misinformation.
