The IMF human legacy in high rating Ghana

According to the IMF, Ghana is a case of success! The government, after faithfully following the IMF's recommendations for shrinking the public sector, fully liberalizing the market and carrying out privatizations, has now "achieved its goals". However at the same time, 4,000 schools do not have any facilities and the students are having their lessons under the trees. At the clinics in the country's northern parts there is one doctor per 161,000 inhabitants! And small scale farmers, without any support from the state, have been left to starve, struggling alone in the free market's vast sea.
