Abstract:The first phase of the process of economic development is the change from a subsistence to a market economy. This change has implied a shift from status as the central legal institution of the society to contract, an institution whose chief importance is within the context of a market economy. This article highlights several aspects of the role of contract as an instrument of private enterprise. Sections: Introduction - The structure of the colonial economy of Ghana - The role of the customary law of contract in the economic development of Ghana - The role of contract in the economic development of Ghana (The role of contract in the mobilisation of capital through both credit and non-credit mechanisms: The role of contract in the mobilization of human resources; The role of contract law as an instrument of co-operation between government and private enterprise; The role of contract in the distribution of goods and services to consumers) - Conclusion. Notes; Resume en franšais.
