Ghana Eyes Lower Rates for First Time in Over Five Years: Chart

Ghana’s central bank could cut its benchmark rate for the first time since 2011, according to five of the six economists surveyed by Bloomberg.

A move to loosen monetary policy on Monday would also be the first since President John Dramani Mahama, who is running for a second term in elections on Dec. 7, took office in the West African nation.
