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 "gsbdiver" (San Francisco, Califoria) - See all my reviews, February 17, 2000

    Fascinating Sweep

    In this novel , Michener takes us throught he ages in the magnifficent Caribbean. While it may be an exaggeration to refer to the Caribbean as a microcosm of the world , it is certainly a rich and diverse and fascinating region , it's tropical beauty matched by it's vibrant and interesting people.Beginning on the island of Dominica , where the Arawaks, a beautiful , gentle and cultured people where displaced by the fierce and warlike Caribs , it continues through the adventures in the Caribeean of Christopeher Columbus , the great pirate admirals like Francis Drake , the struggles of the Spanish , French , British , Dutch and Engish over these islands, the cruelty of slavery , and the equally savage slave uprisings , how the turbulence of the English Civil War and the French Revolutions reached these islands , right up to the challenges of the present day , including a chapter about the Rastafari movement , and about the tyranny on Cuba of Fidel Castro , and the Cuban exile... 4/5 Gary Selikow (Great Kush) - See all my reviews This review is from: Caribbean (Mass Market Paperback) In this novel , Michener takes us throught he ages in the magnifficent Caribbean.

    Enormous guide to ALMOST all the Caribbean

    This is a fantastic, comprehensive guide. There's just one problem: It excludes Cuba, Haiti and The Bahamas.Everywhere else is exhaustively presented. Each location includes recommended lodging, dining, shopping, exploring and outing introduced by brief historical and cultural descriptions. Maps are good. Practical information is complete. Recommendations are made with an insider's insight called "Word of Mouth," and each listing includes a "pro & con" section that gives you a well-rounded review. The book has some special features that help you drill down into its vast vault of information. The "Island Finder" is a really cool feature that does exactly what it sounds like. It matches your interest and budget with location. Too bad there's no history or culture identifier in this tool. There's a lot of information for wedding planners as well, which is a feature not found in other guides.Photography is all in color, and there are many sidebars,... 4/5 Jon L.

    No substitute for the printed book

    For a recent Caribbean holiday, I mulled the purchase of the Fodors Caribbean book and then looked at the Kindle edition. The book is a massive tome with very comprehensive articles on all the islands. I thought that by purchasing the Kindle edition, I would get all that information in a much more convenient travel package for my iPad. Bad decision.The digital edition is very poorly organized and for almost every reading session I found that I constantly had to make trips back to the main index to switch from one topic on a particular town or island to another. For example, you want to find hotels or restaurants near a particular beach - it is practically impossible to do. You want to see a map of an island to look at a particular town? - back to the main index. All of these things are easily accomplished with a book as flipping back and forth between sections is easy.In spite of the weight, I would strongly recommend that the serious traveler buy the print edition.

    Predictable and Poorly Written

    0 1/5 Beth D. - See all my reviews This review is from: Death by Honeymoon (Book #1 in the Caribbean Murder Series) (Kindle Edition) I am surprised at the positive reviews for this book. I found the book to be very predictable and poorly written. The characters were one-dimensional; either they were Cindy's allies or they were evil, horrible people. In addition, I don't know if this is related to the Kindle or it's an issue with the book itself, but there were numerous mistakes: for example, "Ralph" is once referred to as "Richard" and there were a few other instances like this. At the conclusion, everything happens fast and there is no actual discussion of how the case is solved. All in all, not believable and I wish I had not chosen this book to read. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 11, 2011

    Worst Book I've Read In A Long Time

    0 1/5 deb3009 (south chicago suburbs) - See all my reviews This review is from: Death by Honeymoon (Book #1 in the Caribbean Murder Series) (Paperback) I had such hope for this book. Beautiful cover, and the thought of a new mystery series taking place in the Caribbean. What could be a better read in the dead of winter?Well NOT this book!The writing is awful, mistakes are abundant, and you're so distracted by the poor publication quality of this book(numerous blank spaces where words should be)that the plot becomes meaningless. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 8, 2012
