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.

This review is from: Fodor's Caribbean 2015 (Full-color Travel Guide) (Paperback) Excellent tool for the first time traveler to the Caribbean. I am planning a 6 week (January- February) winter diving vacation and have bought several dive and travel books. Fodor's Caribbean is the most up to date and well laid out travel guide I have read. Divers should also check out Best Dives of the Caribbean. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 1, 2014

    Excellent coverage of the specific islands I was looking for

    0 5/5 WearyReader (Salt Lake City) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Fodor's Caribbean 2015 (Full-color Travel Guide) (Kindle Edition) Excellent coverage of the specific islands I was looking for, but the Kindle version is a little hard to navigate (no hot links in the index), and a few of the entries were a little dated even though I used the 2015 guide almost the minute it came out. That probably can't be helped, given the extremely wide scope this quite covers (the whole Caribbean!). I was looking for an English guide to Guadeloupe, and this is basically the go-to book, so despite the navigation problems I'll give it 5 stars. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 6, 2015

    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?)

    Predictable and Poorly Written

    0 1/5 Beth D. - See all my reviews This review is from: Death by Honeymoon (Caribbean Murder Series, Book 1) (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

    Rook Books

    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. Kent "1wiseoldowlwhogivesahoot" (USA) - See all my reviews, January 7, 2012

    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. The author description describes this as the "first novel in... 4/5 doctor_beth "doctor_beth" (Upstate NY USA) - See all my reviews, June 24, 2011
