Government needs to build confidence in the people, in two key areas

Economy_World Finance

We are facing a systemic problem brought on by insular decision-making that is fraught with partisan politics and a failure to tap into the vast talent of competent Ghanaian citizens across the globe who could have helped manage our economy better. We have been to the IMF 17 times, and I do not know why any of us think the country will not be back after another restructuring program. There is a problem with governing and decision-making that has finally caught up with us.

The author proposes two broad areas that could form the basis of confidence-building steps that could help us begin a process of finding a consensus towards changing how we manage our economy as a country, to prevent a catastrophe next time there is a global crisis.
