In common with the U.S.A., the South African economy is becoming increasingly dominated by the large private and public corporate enterprise. The decisions of such organizations are assuming a growing significance in the articulation of the Republic’s space economy. The present paper focusses attention upon the business-management function and determines the location of decision-making in private enterprise in South Africa. The analysis suggests the domination of the South African urban system by one primate core region with Johannesburg the supreme business-management centre. Decision-making in the Republic is more highly concentrated than in any other country so far examined.
