Africa is a major player in global economic engineering. It is also a great development partner, a vital player in the economies of Asian nations who are eager to explore long awaited market possibilities that it presents by forging alliances with hi-growth emerging economies in Africa.
This new economic order is shifting the developmental narratives as Africa’s rich potential market has become more attractive with a population of nearly one billion.
The author of this book is a long time transnational business executive. Although he indicates a level of despair at times, he is quite hopeful of Africa’s prospects. His lived experience as an economist and policy advisor to Presidents, is reflected in these essays that address developmental issues from the colonial economy with those of the new states.
In this, the author uses the experience of Ghana as an example and a site for an analytical perspective. He examines and writes about the issues of natural resource exploration, the oil economy, human skills and also looks at the vital factors of education, religion and the attendant attitudes to development.₵200.00₵200.00

‘Inspirational.’ — Mary Portas
‘Indispensable … written with style and wit.’ — Mishal Husain
Most books about public speaking don’t tell you what to do when you open your mouth and nothing comes out. And they don’t tell you how to get over the anxiety about performance that most people naturally have. They don’t tell you what to do in the moments when you are made, as a woman, to feel small. They don’t tell you how to own the room. This book does.
From the way Michelle Obama projects ‘happy high status’, and the power of J.K.Rowling’s understated speaking style, to Virginia Woolf’s leisurely pacing and Oprah Winfrey’s mastery of inner conviction, what is it that our heroines do to make us sit up and listen – really listen – to their every word? And how can you achieve that impact in your own life? Here’s how.₵70.00
If talking about Ghana is a dice, Ace comes up tops.
Few lawyers engage the socio-political issues of their day as Ace Ankomah does. Ever since he gifted his voice and pen to the public cause, Ace has dissected, analysed and proffered solutions to national issues with a patriotic joie de vivre. Indeed, it is said that he invests as much effort on his clients’ cases as he does on the national front. Or does he?
Ace has participated in street demonstrations, has written, has debated, has sung, and has coined phrases which have gained currency in the national conversation. In this no-holds-barred journey through beautifully written essays, one encounters a writer burdened with the frustrations of a boxer whose hands have been held from behind, the frustration of not being able to punch crass illogicality. And so he rants. From constitutional lacunas to the paradox of cocoa, from building permits to the dilemma of akpeteshie, from ethnicity to the degraded texture of Milo…
Is There Not A Cause…to Rant? is what happens when a stammering, public-spirited private legal practitioner clears his chest about the Ghana he so dearly loves.₵60.00
