Authors: Bannor, Frank
Issue Date: 5-Oct-2016
Abstract: The study investigates natural resource curse for Ghana. The period of study covered monthly data for 4years, that is, January 2011 to December 2014. The research made use of both descriptive analysis and estimates were obtained using the Fully Modified Ordinary Least Squares (FMOLS). The research uses trend analysis and model estimation to test whether the Natural resource curse is present in Ghana or not. Result from the trend analysis shows that there is a positive relationship between oil revenue and gross domestic product (GDP). Additionally, the model estimation results shows that there is no natural resource curse or Dutch disease in Ghana. The research recommends that since there is no evidence for natural resource curse in Ghana, government should do all that it can to develop new wells with a view of expanding oil production to propel growth.
