Anyway, I digress…this is not about Michael. My big bruv has this theory that there is a direct correlation between our lack of productivity as a nation and the meals we indulge in at lunch….
So class, the equation is:
Ghanaian Worker + Typical Ghanaian lunch = Sleep for the rest of the afternoon
I have direct experience with this phenomenon. After a lovely fermented meal like banku (fermented corn and cassava dough), I have to prop open my eyes with tooth-picks.
In fact most Ghanaian lunches from Waakye (rice and beans), fufu (pounded plantain and cassava) have that effect.
I think my brother may have a point because when I was in the
Dutch worker + light sandwich lunch = 30 minute lunch + Nonstop work ‘til 6pm!
Eureka, I have solved the reason why we have a productivity problem in
To elaborate on the equation:
Ghanaian Worker + Hot weather +Typical Ghanaian lunch = Lack of productivity for Mother Ghana
So if we could replace “Typical Ghanaian lunch” with “light sandwich lunch” we could in fact reverse the phenomenon and claim our well-deserved position as a middle income country!
Ghanaian Worker + Hot weather + light sandwich lunch = Productivity for Mother Ghana
Of course there is still the problem of the hot weather....
