Summary
"By the 1950s colonial rule in the Gold Coast had brought about the restructuring of traditional economies, producing additional income from natural resources and developing its agrarian potential for the benefit of the British Empire. However beneficial colonial rule might have been, decolonization in 1957 significantly gave management of the postcolonial economy to native leadership. Fifty years on, much has happened both militarily and constitutionally: periods of serious decline, near collapse, structural reforms and hopes for survival during the administration of the eight regimes. A consensus of opinion regarding their successes and failures is difficult to ascertain, but the first decade of the 21st century has held much promise for Ghana's postcolonial economy. In this book Ivor Agyeman-Duah, an economic historian, brings together the views of twenty distinguished Ghanaians and non-Ghanaians to reflect on how the restructuring of Ghana's institutions and public policies has contributed to shaping the promise of an improved economy for the 21st century Ghanaian." -- Book jacket
