Tied to no one’s apron strings: The Caribbean in an emerging new world

Sir Ronald argues that where devloping states stand in the global order should not be a choice between holding on to the apron strings of either China or the US.  There is no shortage among developing countries of intellectual capacity in a wide range of fields that propel human development.  Their problem has been the inability to harness that collective power and deploy it jointly.   Their collective strength as markets also remains a powerful chip with which to bargain.  One certainty in any new global dispensation is that, if they fail to act together, they will remain in the backwater of human development.  See "Commentaries" section of this website.
