Budgeting in Ghana, not unlike that in any other country in the world, could be
an important instrument for effecting economic development (ED) policies. As a
numerical expression of the intended distribution of national public resources, it is a
multifaceted phenomenon that reflects political and administrative decision making. Much
evidence in the Third-World literature on budgeting and ED asserts that ED policies can
be most effectively implemented when there is a systematic interrelation and coordination
between budgeting and ED policies. The position taken in this dissertation goes beyond
Specifically, this dissertation posits, in addition to the systematic interrelationship
and coordination between budgeting and ED policies, that ED policies should be
systematically integrated with development administration and human-resource
development. The dissertation evaluates Ghana's budgetary practices and policies as they
affect the country's ED programs. Because these practices and policies are not
systematically coordinated and integrated with ED policies, the study highlights and
examines the dilemmas facing those who attempt to stimulate effective ED in Ghana, and
it recommends changes.
