This briefing, based on Working Paper 53, analyses the ways in which Ghana’s current political settlement and the structure of its domestic economy shape the relationship between the state and the business sector. This analysis is used to explain why Ghana’s sustained growth has occurred without a corresponding transformation of the economy towards more high productivity sectors.
