New Cities New Economies is  a  proposition  for  South  Africa  to  undertake  massive  urbanization across the entire country and Continent, as a strategy for the attainment of higher levels of economic growth and transformation. This vision may appear to most daunting, overwhelming, radical and too ambitious to contemplate. Indeed,  such  will  be  an  arduous  undertaking,  but  history  is  made  by  first-­‐timers.  South Africa was not always the way it is right now, it was dreamed this way by apartheid masterminds and systematically built up, brick by brick. The fear of change can only hold us back and keep us ever haunted by the hideous ghost of apartheid. — Dr. Tshilidzi Ratshitanga
