Abstract:Concerned, with the social and economic consequences of inflation, most African states introduced price-control, legislation. Economists tend to be sceptical about the desirability and effectiveness of such controls, and this article throws some light on this issue, as it relates to circumstances of tropical Africa, by examining the operation of price regulations in Ghana during the 1960s. The author explains why the price controls missed the aim of protecting the consumer's real incomes. Notes, tables.
