This booklet argues that knowing the family political surroundings is essential in explaining why compliance, or the shortcoming thereof, happens. Akonor continues that compliance with IMF conditionality in Ghana has had excessive political bills and therefore, non-compliance happened as soon as the political survival of a regime was once at stake.
