New Commentaries

New Commentaries have been added.   The lastest is: The relevance and state of US-Caribbean relations - Part 3'.   In this commentary, Sir Ronald points out that the US State Department mentions energy, security, diplomacy, prosperity, education and health as priorities for US-Caribbean relations.  He argies that if Caribbean representatives are asked, they would offer different matters for priority, such as economic development including infrastructure; climate change (completely absent from the State Department list) that threatens the survival of many of them;  an end to the assault on their financial services sector which imperils their participation in the global trade and finance system; access to financial resources of the international financial institutions on concessionary terms so as create jobs in the productive sector; and security concerns such as effects on rising criminality of the deportation of criminals fashioned in the US.
