|Don't worry, Condom Tax will stop this!|
Tweeting the state of the Ghanaian economy in my candid opinion is like asking the ant to carry a sick camel to the hospital. In other words, it is impossible to describe the Ghanaian economy in 140 characters (my candid opinion). I just can’t! By the time I’ll finish summarizing the effects of dumsorlogy, tax hikes and inflation, I have already exhausted 500 characters. If I start talking about high borrowing costs, low investor confidence, political disputes, and the impact of macro/micro economic policies, which have made themselves necessary concomitants, we’ll be looking at some 2000 characters.
But my friends on twitter taught me a great lesson, that 140 is actually more than enough when it comes to describing the Ghanaian economy. I have classified all opinions into 5 categories, with a very exceptional opening comment from Kajsa. Enjoy!
|But this is suppose to be money ooo, GHS 37.|
“Do I even know? Economics is a mystery to me. I bought something for 6 GHC today that 2 years ago was 3. That is the reality. I don’t get it!”
Aaaa...... Oyiwa! No wonder GHS 1 can only buy 10 pieces of "pure water".
1. The "Economy is for the rich"
These friends made it clear, that to survive in the Ghanaian economy, you need to be a "borger." (The type with some foreign currencies to "waste").
