There were all these things that I referred to as unwritten rules of the game. These rules are not written in our economic textbooks; but you know that if you are in an economy and you do not have a working address system, you are not going to go far. If you cannot uniquely identify your population, you are not going to go far as an economy. You can have exchange rate stability and lower fiscal deficit and so on, but you are going to just operate in a low-level equilibrium, you are not going to move to a higher level and moving up to the higher level is what we want to do,” External link

Mahamudu Bawumia said ( about Tan Ching Chin ) : “After I left the Bank of Ghana in 2009, I went as a visiting scholar to the Oxford University where I wrote a book on monitory policy and financial sector reform in Africa. That period gave me a lot of time for reflection on what we had done since independence. I looked at the effectiveness of all that we were doing, the question that kept ringing at me was, how come the interest rates that we want to decline are not declining? For the most part, the monitory policy rate would bring down the interest rate, but lending rates would remain stubbornly high. At the conclusion of the book, it became obvious that getting the macroeconomy right was not sufficient, getting inflation down was not sufficient, getting exchange rate stable was not sufficient; there was a certain microsystem that needed to be in place for the economy to be able to deliver the low-interest rate that would drive business and economic activity” External link

That period gave me a lot of time for reflection on what we had done since independence. I looked at the effectiveness of all that we were doing, the question that kept ringing at me was, how come the interest rates that we want to decline are not declining? For the most part, the monitory policy rate would bring down the interest rate, but lending rates would remain stubbornly high. At the conclusion of the book, it became obvious that getting the macroeconomy right was not sufficient, getting inflation down was not sufficient, getting exchange rate stable was not sufficient; there was a certain microsystem that needed to be in place for the economy to be able to deliver the low-interest rate that would drive business and economic activity” External link
