Mr Ken Kwamina Thompson will be at it again at a Chartered Institute of Marketing Institute Ghana (CIMG) event at Alisa Hotel this Tuesday 27 March 2018.
The CEO of Dalex Finance and Leasing Company has since 2014 acquired a reputation of bold and controversial analysis of the state of the economy of Ghana.
In 2014 his prediction “Let the Cedi fall” caused consternation among economists in Ghana.
This was at a time when orthodox thinking was to prop up the value of the cedi. His mantra “Ghana is broke” has been oft repeated after Ken Thompson put that out in 2015.
In 2016, he lambasted the managers of the economy by saying “In the abundance of water, the fool is thirsty”. Ken version of blunt, plain-spoken and common-sense economic analysis is now in high demand in with the media and at corporate events.
The event has the topic “A conversation with Ken – The economy of Ghana”. Captains of industry and the financial sector are expected to be in attendance to hear another ‘blast’ from Ken.
The politicians may be wondering on whose side Ken will be ‘coming down on’ this time. Watch this space.
