Money and Economic Growth: Aspects and Lessons from Ghana and Africa
The book explores issues of money in a comprehensive yet non-technical manner for the benefit of students, interested observers, and policymakers. To do justice to this subject, the book returns to basic economics and finance, and undertakes a tour d’horizon on the role of money and its origins.
The history of money discussed in this book and the various theories of money, provide a rich panoply and context of ideas from which the book develops its key messages. Controversial yet absorbing.
