Professor John Gatsi has made some powerful points on Connect FM dialogue series .

According to the Professor, he would not advise the government on whether to implement E-levy or to go to the IMF but he asked the finance minister to exploit diverse revenue streams whilst making sure that there is a fairness principle behind the E-levy . He explained that , it would not be for two people to visit the Takoradi Mall to make purchases where the one with momo is taxed whilst the one with cash is not taxed.

He encouraged that the issue of inflation should not be politicised since the change to 15.7percent is a response to economic shocks but not mismanagement of the country's economy.

The Professor also said that ,in recent times, the political trend in the country is that of eight years and so there must be project management register to provide easy handing over notes to successive governments on all public projects. He advised that various governments should utilise a National Development Plan to restructure the economy . The Professor encouraged a continuous dialogue between the NPP and NDC before policies are made due to the eight year political trend .

He also mentioned that Ghana has backslidden from the path of promoting agriculture and should focus more on agriculture instead of importing basic farm produce.
