This book aims to make a further contribution to our study of the development of the economy of Ghana. The earlier volume—The Economy of Ghana: The First 25 Years Since Independence (Huq, 1989)—examined the economic progress of the country since independence in 1957 up to the early 1980s. This volume takes forward the story to the present, thus enabling us to cover a period of over five decades.
