Résumé : Depuis son indépendance en 1957, le Ghana a expérimenté un certain nombre d'approches pour atteindre un taux acceptable de croissance et de développement économiques. Après la période d'industrialisation rapide des années 60, après les mesures de contrôle et autres interventions de l'Etat des années 70, les années 80 ont été marquées par un programme clair de réforme ainsi que par une politique de libéralisation économique. La croissance initiale et la stabilité macroéconomique n'ont toutefois pas duré au-delà du court terme. La question majeure reste donc de savoir si le Ghana doit poursuivre ses mesures de réforme. L'ouvrage collectif édité par Ernest Aryeetey, Jane Harrigan et Machiko Nissanke nous procure une vue objective, systématique et intelligible des développements de l'économie du Ghana. Il apporte la masse critique de nombreuses analyses indépendantes des changements internvenus dans l'économie de ce pays depuis le milieu des années 60 (au moment où ont émergé les dernières évaluations sérieuses des changements politiques et structurels : Birmingham, Neustadt et Omaboe 1967)
Aid as handmaiden for the development of institutions : a new comparative perspective ( Book )
6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 101 libraries worldwide
Through comparative studies of aid supported infrastructure projects in East Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa, the book examines how aid could assist development processes by facilitating development of local endogenous institutions, which are both pro-growth and pro-poor. Applying comparative institutional analyses based on the concept of endogenous institutions and institutional changes, and exploring the model of 'development cooperation', the book examines aid effectiveness in a broader context of institution development in the two regions. It offers a new perspective on the institutions-development nexus, alternative to the conventional one with its emphasis of an inevitable institutional convergence to a monolithic universal model. It argues that socially and politically sustainable development involves institutional innovation by developing endogenous institutions, firmly embedded in a local social-political system. The book offers policy lessons from the East Asian experiences with aid-supported infrastructure projects to governments in sub-Saharan Africa, the international aid community, including emerging development partners

Channels and policy debate in the globalization-inequality-poverty nexus by Machiko Nissanke( Book )
10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 22 libraries worldwide
The paper offers a critical literature review of the debate surrounding the globalization-poverty nexus, focusing on channels and linkages through which globalization affects the poor. After introducing four different concepts used to measure trends in world inomce inequality, it examines first the 'growth' conduit through which globalization affects poverty. Treating inequality as the explicit filter between growth and poverty reduction, the causal chain of openness-growth-inequality-poverty is scrutinized, link by link. The paper then moves on the examine other channels in the globalization-poverty nexus that operate through changes in relative factor and good prices, factor movements, the nature of technological change and diffusion, the impact of globalization on volatility and vulnerability, the worldwide flow of information, global disinflation, and institutions, respectively. The paper concludes with a discussion of strategic policy issues within the context of the globalization debate" -- Abstract
