Macroeconomics: Skills, Diversification, Economic Structure and Growth

Part of the SpringerBriefs in Economics book series (BRIEFSECONOMICS, volume 49)


Favourable macroeconomic conditions and political stability together with improved levels of education have all helped to contribute towards solid economic growth in Ghana over the period 2000–2008 at an annual average rate of 5.3 %, beyond any historical highs based on World Development data. This chapter sheds light on the inter-locking relationships between education, skills development, economic structure, diversification and growth in Ghana. It begins by analysing cross-country data to assess economic growth’s linkages with educational spending and attainment.
