This book offers a carefully organized selection of documents of a type which are rarely published for public scrutiny, including IMF and World Bank reports, minutes of debt rescheduling conferences, and a variety of the government's own memoranda and decisions. The author shows why the IMF set out to destroy Ghana's development plans and how the IMF-prescribed austerity programme of 1966 led to a stagnation from which the country has still not recovered.
