JP Landman is a self-employed analyst on political-economic trends. During the lockdown, he has become a welcome invitee at senior executive and board-level meetings. It’s here that his deep insights and years of experience have been “an extremely valuable addition where an outsider’s fresh eyes add a new perspective and keep the execs honest” – in the words of one board director.
He focuses on trends in politics, economics, and demography.
In 2006 he was appointed as a member of then-President Thabo Mbeki’s Economic Advisory Panel.
In 2013 he was elected a Public Policy Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson Center for International Scholars in Washington DC and he spent four months in the US.
He has a BA LLB from Stellenbosch University (1978), studied Economics at Harvard (1998 and again in 2005), and obtained a MPhil in Future Studies (cum laude) from Stellenbosch (2003). In 2009 he completed a course at Oxford University Continuing Education on the economies of the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India & China).
He has been a consultant to Nedbank Private Wealth since 2000.
