    In ECONOMICS there is something called -( INVITATION TO TREAT)-.One can go to a shop or market with old prices slashed with A NEW reduced prices on the tag but u still see that the old price is still there cancelled..Will somebody tells me why if a commodity of goods prices are reduced to a new price the old price is still there?.Cos of homogeniuos of that COMMODITY..Kevin Boateng will be called but,will not in the part of the TEAM.The sacrifice altenative of KPB ,economically,, doesnt worth for GHANAIANS no more..KPB demand is less than supply..KPB will be a BENCH WARMER.

I know where U come from cos of ur name ( NANA)..U dont even know what the dedicated patriotic BS players whom always answer to the calls to help their country Ghana when they are needed patriotically..I can thrash U calling U a lot of names, but i hinder not to, cos I know I am not in a Ghanaian website..U heard the calibre or knows psychologically waat can KPB do in the world cup to sit on yur lazy chair to watch some one uve have heard of being KPB as he KPB dont want to or regreted to switch allegiances to be a Ghanian citizen.
      He could be called NANA too playing to make your day..I believe U (NANA) that all those Prempehs, the Oseis and the Tutus knows how to do to be respected with that name NANAS….I already knows wat u meant when U shut me off reading yur Blog..What will U do(Nana) as all ashantis called themselves Nanas even thoo if i tells yu that Ghana even have Nana who shines the KIngs shoes is called Nana..U are pathetic person..I have seen yur IP# and ill anwser yu thoroughly on one of the Ghanian websites..

        you are such a block headed person who doesn’t even know the important role COCOA plays in Ghana’s economy and so u look down upon people who make the COCOA business flourish in our dear nation. If you want to see the Ashantis in BOOKS go to those BOOKS that make peoples life better, talk about prosperity and you will find us there, can you mention one tribe in Ghana or even in sub-Saharan Africa that is well organized and more prosperous than the Ashanti tribe??? Yes we’re proud to be a very well organized, well advance and civilized COCOA farmers the backbone of Ghana’s success stories in economy.and we have all the riches and more success stories to tell than any tribe your block headed mind can think of.

Do you think because of the little knowledge you’ve got your no more good to one of those Asante Captives of the past? Go ask your elders about who truly Asantes are! You are always a great admirer of insanity and stupidity.Massa think straight and sound like a well naturered Ghanaian !

    hahahaha, kwame nkrumah, as for this one diee, u’ve been put in your place. wtf has economics got to do with this, aaah. in ECONOMICS, theres also something called derived demand: the demand for the inputs to create on conceive the final output. in this case, KPB is a derived demand, because he makes us that much better. calm down with your economics crap, you’re not the only one who has studied it. nice play nana. too funny.
