Ghana’s development dilemma: The quest for a pragmatic approach

Sam Sarpong

Local Economy, 2014, vol. 29, issue 1-2, 3-8

Abstract: Over the years, Ghana’s development agenda has witnessed various swings as a result of the different economic agendas successive governments adopted. The changes to the economic agendas reflect the considerable unease with the constituents of development and economic growth and the complex processes that they entail. This article attempts to place in context the wide variety of explanations for the unease. Considerable effort is made to appreciate why Ghana, like other countries, has been induced to adopt the neo-liberal economic policies in a bid to participate fully in the global economic arrangement.
