Abstract

At the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939, the South African economy had experienced a transition from a predominantly mining and agricultural economy to a more diversified one. The changing structure of the economy is reflected in the relative decline in the contribution of agriculture and mining to the National Income, and the increase in manufacturing (15,4% in 1930 to 17,7%in 1939).
