    • Abstract:
      South Africa is still confronted with widespread poverty, unemployment and high levels of income inequality along racial lines. To counteract these issues, South Africa implemented an extensive social welfare system. However, both academics and policymakers have voiced concerns that the social grants may give perverse incentives. This article contributes to the discourse looking at how the largest social grant in South Africa, the Older Persons Grant could be seen as generating perverse incentives. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
