About this book
This book sets out the economic challenges facing the island nations of the Caribbean, and presents policy options to ameliorate external shocks and embark firmly on a sustained growth path. While the countries of the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union that are the focus of the book have enjoyed a sustained period of price and exchange rate stability, they have been buffeted in recent years by adverse shocks, including the erosion of trade preferences, declines in official foreign assistance, and frequent natural disasters. Strengthening their growth performance will require design of a multifaceted strategy that integrates the Caribbean with the global economy, facilitates an economic transformation from agriculture to tourism, fosters greater regional cooperation, and preserves macroeconomic stability. This volume examines the critical issues that are part of that process, including fiscal and financial sector policy, management of external flows, trade integration and tourism, macroeconomic cycles and volatility, and the economic implications of natural disasters.

    Disappointed Second Time Around

    If this is your first general Caribbean book, it is great. It is disappointing, however, to buy an "updated" version to find that the same exact stock photography is used. Prices are updated, and some resort info changed, but you can side-by-side compare most islands and it is about exactly the same. The island maps could also be clearer; listing "Resorts 1-7" with a line isn't very specific.One change that was made from the 2011 edition was the removal of : Highly Recommended, Facilities, Smoking options, the option (need) to BYOB, and Family Friendly. The icon for what used to be Credit Cards accepted now stands for no credit cards. When you have people who have been reading your books, changing icons can big a big deal. Also, Family Friendly is just as important to those traveling with families to those traveling without.On a positive note, when in Curacao, in 2010, it was neat to show our tour guide that his company was in the book... 3/5 Jmarie Pearson - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    No Sugar Coating in this Superb History of the Caribbean

    As Carrie Gibson notes in the conclusion to her superb history of the Caribbean, "it is much easier to imagine a West Indies without history." The prevailing view of Americans and Europeans of the Caribbean is one seen through the eyes of tourism - a paradise of exquisite beaches and rum drinks with little umbrellas. But as Ms. Gibson so aptly demonstrates, the Caribbean is not a mere footnote of history: it has been a geographic vortex of superpower entanglement and a crossroad of globalism for over half a millennium.Ms. Gibson creates a lively narrative supercharged with facts, but none offered gratuitously. I knew I was in for a treat as the introduction began with an anecdote about a decapitated statute still standing in a park in Fort-de-France, Martinique. We learn that the statute was of Napoleon Buonaparte's first wife, who was born on the island. Many islanders believed that it was she who convinced Napoleon to reinstate slavery on this island eight years... 5/5 MBJ (USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    John Payne & Sir Cedric Hardwick two of the best actors you hardly hear about!!!!

    This movie played well all the way through. I rate this movie at 5 stars because I love pirate films & this is a very unique one! I have always enjoyed John Payne's acting as well as Sir Cedric Hardwick both hugely underrated actors that never fail to deliver!!!! A lot of the outside sets are shot indoors but are beautiful none the less! The costumes are opulent representing the wealth these piratical figures had gained an are period correct. The whole storyline & plot twists are well written and totally believable! In the opening seen we see Sir Cedric Hardwick incorporate the use of placing a corpse over the treasure in a shallow grave, a well known tactic used by the pirates to discourage anyone from digging further & discovering the treasure! And yes that is a real Water Moccasin Or Cotton Mouth which ever you prefer that John Payne crushes under heel which ultimately gives away his hiding place.

    Finally. A Convincing Prirate Movie.

    0 5/5 De witte leeuw. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Caribbean (Amazon Instant Video) I had reservations about viewing an old movie like this from 1952, but I found it surprisingly well-done. It was not your usual "swashbuckler" so often seen in that era. The plot was extremely good, the acting convincing, the period clothing and arms exact, and the ships magnificent. Cedric Hardwicke did a tour de force as the betrayed pirate captain out on a mission of revenge against his former partner who was holed up in his tropical island fortress. This movie was so good in fact that I dearly wanted to purchase a copy of it on DVD and found that it doesn't exist in Region 1 format. Why? I do not know, because it would sell in the USA very well. Nevertheless, if you can, don't let this one get by you unseen. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 12, 2014

    A superbly-plotted murder mystery

    In Castle Cay, Lee Hanson has meticulously crafted a fascinating murder mystery that will delight fans of the genre. The book has a very strong opening - the premise of the story is immediately revealed as the protagonist Julie O'Hara and the reader set about uncovering the truth behind her best friend Marc Solomon's death.Julie O'Hara is a complex, vibrant protagonist whose particular skill (she is a body language expert) is invaluable in helping her `read' her suspects. But it is when the reader learns about her tragic past that Julie really starts to jump off the page.One of the book's main strengths is that even the supplementary characters feel fully fleshed out - they are dynamic and interesting - which makes it more than just a murder mystery as you are deeply involved with the various family members and friends (from the deceased's relatives to Mafia members).The author's greatest success is in putting together such a complex plot while... 5/5 Mr. Aman S. Anand - See all my reviews, May 12, 2011

    For me I have found a new (indie) author that is a true gem with her writing talent !!

    Lee Hanson is a awesome indie writer who was born with a wonderful gift of being a great mystery/suspense/crime author.This is my 2nd 5 star review for Lee Hanson's and . Lee Hanson ranks right up there with the best female mystery writers of our time.I love Lee Hanson's choice of having a unique main character, Julie O'Hara who is a body language expert and is also a down-to-earth person you'd want for a friend. Julie never gives up on finding who is telling the truth or not by watching for clues that she gets from their body language. She is so casually cool, calm and very relaxed when she asks people simple questions and watch's their movements for... 5/5 Alice L.

    Page-turning suspense novel

    NOTE: I received a free review copy of this book from the author.This novel centers around Julie O'Hara, a woman in her late 30s who learns that her best friend, Marc Solomon, has suddenly passed away. Although Marc had AIDS, Julie refuses to believe that he committed suicide, and she soon begins to suspect foul play. Traveling from her home in Florida back to Boston, where she and Marc met many years before, stirs up some of the dark memories that she and Marc both shared of Castle Cay, a private island owned by the Solomon family. Did Castle Cay play a role in Marc's murder?Author Lee Hanson does an excellent job of building suspense in this murder mystery. She writes likeable characters who are well-developed, adding interest to the plot. Although the one "bad guy" in this story was fairly obvious, I personally had no idea how exactly Marc's death occurred until it was revealed in the book.
