Community-based economic development: The pathway

I like the proposed idea of community-based economic development for Ghana. However, I think the justification was poorly done, as the previous parts of the write-up leading to the proposed idea focused narrowly on politics rather than the economy or the political economy. In all, the author has not not informed the reader about the nature of the current economic system in Ghana and why it has not been successful. Focusing only local politics and failing to discuss the influence historical factors and current global forces makes the author's argument less compelling. I do see potential benefits in community-based anything in a developing country context like Ghana, but the idea and its justification need further refinement before it could be taken seriously.
