The Caribbean, From Vulnerability to Sustained Growth

Creator: Ratna Sahay, David O. Robinson, Paul Cashin, International Monetary Fund | Business & Economics - 2006-09-30

Publisher: IMF

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.

    A book of epic proportions - literally!

    0 4/5 Betti Trapp - See all my reviews This review is from: Caribbean (Mass Market Paperback) Reader beware - 800 plus pages, so this is no book for story time. Extremely prolific, James A. Michener writes as only he can write about the Caribbean, that vast expanse of ocean surrounded by Cuba, Puerto Rico and the extensive small islands smattered across the seascape. This is a powerful history of these islands, and James Michener takes us from the 1300s when a peaceful tribe of Arawaks are horribly destroyed all the way to Castro's Cuba. This is the sort of book one would do better learning about this area from, as the author weaves plot upon plot into a brilliantly masterminded historical novel. You will learn more from this book about the Caribbean Sea and its islands than any history or geography class could give you, and you will have more fun doing it! I gave it four stars simply because with a book this size, there was bound to be some dreadfully boring parts, and there were. If it were a bit shorter in length it would lack nothing but a Pulitzer. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 5, 2004

    excellent, in-depth .. top-notch michener

    If you have read and like michener, this is a classic (my personal favorite). If you have not, classic michener means that he takes a very in-depth, well researched area and wraps a novel around it. In Carribean, he looks at the evolution from the Mayan times to the modern, covering the cultures, the facts and the myths. What makes it fun is the way he wraps his exhaustive research of the facts into the regions myths and a set of characters. This makes the novels fun and interesting, because even though the people are ficticious, one identifies more with the stories of people than a textbook approach to the facts.The chapters, dealing with different historical periods, focus on various sub-regions as they wane and wax in power and importance. It particularly appealed to my interest in history and frankly may be tiresome to those who do not have the same passion for history (ie, if you don't like historical accounts, you may not like this book!)Oh, yes,... 5/5 Jason Holloway (San Francisco, Califoria) - See all my reviews, February 17, 2000

    You have to take it in context.

    A lot of negative reviews focus on 3 chapters that come right in a row - about All Saints the made up island, the illegal immigrant from Trinidad and the negatively portrayed Rasta man specifically.I will first say that the first 3/4 of the book are fantastic, rich and exciting tales of Mayan Indians, pirates, rum-runners, buccaneers, bloody revolution and general debauchery that keeps you burning through pages. Then we hit a supposed dead spot as we skip from the late 1890s to 1938.Michener used the same literary device here in Caribbean he used 7 years earlier in his novel Space, despite people complaining because they didn't understand. In Space, Michener replaces Nebraska's exact borders with a state called Freemont, after John Frémont the French-American explorer and proponent of "manifest destiny" - carrying that idea that the US must expand till there's no more room left into outer space as well. In Caribbean, he replaces Saint Lucia with the... 4/5 Wa'el (Normal, Illinois, USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Caribbean (Mass Market Paperback) A lot of negative reviews focus on 3 chapters that come right in a row - about All Saints the made up island, the illegal immigrant from Trinidad and the negatively portrayed Rasta man specifically.I will first say that the first 3/4 of the book are fantastic, rich and exciting tales of Mayan Indians, pirates, rum-runners, buccaneers, bloody revolution and general debauchery that keeps you burning through pages.

    Fodor's

    Everything Caribbean (except pirates)

    This is one of the biggest and best Fodor books I have ever seen, and having been to 52 different countries, usually with a guidebook in hand, I’ve seen my share. This book is almost 1200 pages and covers all the countries and territories listed below. Oddly, several major Caribbean destinations, like Cuba, Haiti and the Bahamas are not included, presumably because there are dedicated guidebooks from Fodor for those locales. Instead, this book includes some hidden gems, like Montserrat, Saba, and St. Eustatius (the latter having been featured on a House Hunters episode on HGTV). Including these in this guidebook is just a nice touch.Although this book is in full color, there aren’t that many photos. The introduction pages give a lot of good information that is helpful in determining where to go in the Caribbean, and each destination chapter includes a photo, map, and a few “top reasons to visit”. All of that is helpful in deciding if a destination... 5/5 Eric Sedensky (Madison, AL, US) - See all my reviews, November 9, 2015

    Great comprehensive guide with beautiful photographs.

    I have been to the Caribbean on cruises several times and was looking for new things to check out in the islands on our upcoming cruise. This guide provides a great overview to the Caribbean and about 30 pages on each island. I love that it is full color and the pages don't feel cheap. The first section has a map of the Caribbean and an "island finder" that gives ratings for each island in terms of things like cost, beaches, dining, shopping, casinos, nightlife, diving, golf, eco-tourism, good for families. This is nice to help narrow down islands if you are trying to plan a week-long trip or select your cruise itinerary (Eastern, Southern or Western). The guide then goes into some general information about the Caribbean and rates some top overall pics for things like beaches, golf, boating, diving and snorkeling, shopping. There is brief coverage on when to go, hurricane season, weddings, kids and families, local food and drinks.Then each island is covered... 5/5 Gadget Girl (Alexandria, VA) - See all my reviews, October 2, 2015

    So Many Islands, So Little Time

    No doubt that each of the island countries covered in this massive Fodor's compilation deserve a guidebook of their own. That said, for someone who's planning on a cruise or someone who's trying to decide among so many choices, this book will serve the traveler well. There's a massive amount of information to digest here, and most travelers will instead use this guide to focus in on possible choices or what they can accomplish on a day trip from their cruise ship.To really get a feel for the book, this traveler decided to look at and compare two places -- one already experienced (Jamaica) and one I've been longing to see (Cayman Islands). As for coverage of Jamaica, it seemed adequate but not expansive. There is a pull-out section on reggae, something many travelers are likely to be interested in, but the travel section didn't cover the political scene at all, which many travelers may not care about, but for me was a gap. It did warn travelers about road conditions (spotty... 5/5 Christine Zibas (Chicagoland, IL, USA) - See all my reviews, September 30, 2015

    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

    Another Winner From Hale

    Rebecca M. Hale is my favorite author. I fell in love with her Cats and Curios mysteries beginning with How to Wash a Cat and have continued on through the rest, Ode to a Fish Sandwich being the latest. "Quirky Tales..." is an understatement. Her penchant for quirky characters and plots is her hallmark. A dermatologist, phobic about sunlight and jilted at the altar, decides to continue with his honeymoon plans on his own by checking into the romantic couples resort on a Caribbean island. Feeling uncomfortable among the happy couples surrounding him, he ventures into town and discovers the ultimate in culinary delights, the Fish Sandwich. Unaware of the island's folklore, he stumbles upon events which he has no idea will make him a part of the island's history. This of course includes a volcano and a lovesick tuna. The book is laugh-out-loud funny at times, the dermatologist, endearing, and the plot outrageous combining for a completely enjoyable reading experience... 5/5 susan carpenter - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Not a fishy story, but one about a fish sandwich

    Ode To A Fish Sandwich is a very well written novella that has bit of suspense, humor and very enjoyable look at a remote Caribbean island.Dermatologist, Dr. Walcott Jones, has been left at the altar. He decides to go ahead and take his honeymoon at a couples only resort on a remote Caribbean island. Being a dermatologist, he is overly concerned with being in the sun and is constantly lathered with sunscreen. So much so he has earned the nickname White Wally at the resort. He soon wants to see the rest of the island and pleads with guards to open the electrified gate. He finds Delilah's Beachside Diner, where he soon finds that the only thing is a fish sandwich, said to be the best in the island.There are three characters and they tell their own story.This was an excellent story and as with all of Hale's work, very descriptive with just a touch of humor along the way.As I read this story I couldn't help but think about stories on The... 5/5 F.
