dc.description.abstract This article analyzes forms, structure, drivers and implications of inequalities in Ghana; examines its political economy and suggests remedial policy options and challenges. Regarding economic inequalities, it shows that despite a general reduction in the incidence of income poverty, its depth has increased: with a wider income distribution gap between the poorest and richest households; marked disparities between the well-endowed South and the impoverished North; and a gendered bias in the distribution of wealth assets. Overall, the non-diversi fi ed nature of Ghana ’ s recent rapid growth has not boosted employment or reduced inequalities. en_US
