When Ghana gained independence in 1957, its prospects for development were quite strong relative to other countries in Africa. Its per capita income was good and growing at nearly 3 per cent a year in the 1950s. It could boast a strong foreign reserve situation, abundant supply of cultivatable land and labour, very low inflation and a fairly equitable distribution of income and prosperity.
