Background
Political election manifestos are public declarations of policies and aims of political parties wanting to rule a nation. Given that a manifesto is a social contract that plays a key role in modern democracy and development, we put available manifestos in their place going into election 2020 of Ghana. It is important to note that the discussion is not to pitch one manifesto against the other in terms of superiority but to look at how the promises address the desired level of development we require as a society. By so doing, we are able to highlight the gaps in these manifestos for a better society. In this episode of CEBSAR TALK, we focus on financial economics characterized by monetary policies, fiscal policies, banking, savings and loans, insurance, etc.
