A substantial body of literature on investment in South Africa has emerged over the past decade, with diverse findings. This chapter provides an assessment of reported findings. It considers domestic private physical capital accumulation and public capital accumulation, and it reflects briefly on the likely growth consequences of the evidence reviewed. The chapter then takes stock of the evidence, placing emphasis on the broader thematic insights that emerge from the relatively diverse set of papers on investment behaviour in South Africa.
