This paper studies economic globalisation in Ghana and Kenya by examining both the domestic national policy environment that mediates globalisation and by measuring the nature and level of global engagement. Global engagement is measured in two ways: first, by indexing international business perceptions of the reform process and second, by creating one of the first indexes of economic globalisation by compiling data on economic flows such as foreign direct investment, multinational activity, etc. These analyses lead to the main conclusions that globalisation is geographically differentiated and that the impact of economic globalisation is a function of trade policy, institutional and ethnic variables.
