An Oxfam Country Profile. This is a review of Ghana and its people, providing its historical and political background and tracing it growth. Since 1981, following years of corrupt military rule, Ghana has undergone economic structural adjustment and political liberalization, and is often hailed as a success story of economic recovery. Through the personal testimonies of Ghanaian farmers, traders, school children and stockbrokers, this country profile shows how social and economic constraints are affecting daily life, and what Ghanaians themselves are doing to shape their own future.
