Known for its deep history, sandy beaches and lush forests, Ghana is one of the 54 countries that make up the African continent. Ghana Is One Of Africa's Most Peaceful Nations.
Based on the past futures framework analysis of the December 31st peopleís revolution in Ghana, the period spanning 1982 to April 1983 is designated as the first past-future of the revolution. This past-future is rhetorically and ideologically characteristic of an anti-imperialist, anti-neocolonialist populism. However, the period spanning April 1983 to 1992 is designated as the second past-future of the revolution. This phase of the revolution is heavily characteristic of a neoliberal populist rhetoric driven by a fiscal ideology. The fiscal ideology in question was undergirded by the infusion of the IMF and World Bank SAP (Structural Adjustment Programme) aid into the economic recovery plans for Ghana in the 1980s and 1990s.
