Synopsis

This is one of the best books reflecting on Ghana's half-a-century of often tumultuous transformation. Ivor Agyeman-Duah has gathered together a group of scholars, educators and government, business and civil society leaders to debate the trajectory of Ghana's economic history. Their views centre on three fundamental themes: structures and institutions in a postcolonial economy, the role of public policy, stimulus and innovation.

A timely volume as Ghana celebrated its 50th Anniversary of Independence in 2007 under President Kufuor's 2-terms of eight-years of relatively peaceful democratic rule. Contributors include: Jeffrey D. Sachs, Anthony Akoto-Osei., Richard Anane, Joyce Aryee, Ellen Bortei-Doku Aryeetey, Ernest Aryeetey, Moses Asaga, Ken Ofori-Atta, Gareth Austin, Annan Arkyin Cato, Mary Chinery-Hesse, T. Oteng-Gyasi, E. Gyimah-Boadi, Dirk-Jan Omtzigt, D.K. Osei, Isaac Osei, Nii Moi Thompson and Charles Wereko-Brobbey, et al.
