LEARNING HOW TO PLAY TO WIN is not about the unjust world economic order that keeps poorer countries in continuing dependence and poverty. Neither is it about the IMF, the World Bank or the multi-nationals’ role in making nations like ours constantly impoverished.


The book examines in a humourous way fundamental issues on the home front: why do we remain poor? Why do we not achieve social and economic progress? Why do we continue to remain observers of the process of other nations?


This is not an academic book. It is written simply and directed at all Ghanaians.
