Abstract:Looking at the fundamental law of Ghana, one gets a very deceptive impression of the relative importance the Ghanaians attach to their concern for the nature of government activity in the control of their economic resources gene generally, and of trade in particular. The Constitution, 1969, has no chapter prescribing principles for the regulation of the economy. The author indicates some of the effects in law of this lack of reference to acceptable principles of economic activity by individuals and of acceptable principles of control by government. He also examines the areas of contact between the law and the control of internal trade as well as the effect iveness of certain types of legal provision as a governmental tool of trade control. Finally he presents a theory of what ought to be a principle underlying every government decision to pass new legislation on the control of trade. Notes.
