The Ghanaian political economy is in the throes of a deep and multi-faceted crisis symptomatic of institutional and economic breakdowns. Evidence of political instability is the fluidity of change of both civilian and military regimes. As a social crisis it is characterized by a profound awareness (at least by the new left iritellectuals) of the necessity for radical structural reforms.
