Foreign aid has become one of the most important sources of capital flows to
developing countries in the present past. According to development theorists, this
massive inflow of capital wilt fill the foreign exchange gap and propel developing
countries into sustained growth and development.
This study attempts to examine the impact of this massive capital inflow on the
inflation and the growth of output in Ghana for the period under consideration. The
principal objective ofthe study is to examine the impact of foreign aid on the real gross
domestic product of Ghana. Specifically the study examines the relationship between
foreign aid and output growth and also foreign aid and inflation. The analysis is guided
by the hypothesis that foreign aid enhances output and raises the level ofinflation.
Based on the results of the analysis, we accept the hypothesis that foreign aid enhances
output. We also accept the hypothesis that aid deflationary.
The policy implication is that Ghana should invest aid monies in areas that that yield
greater and faster returns, in directly productive activities. The country should also take
more concessionary loans to reduce the overall debt burden of the country.
