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.

This review is from: Caribbean: The Islands (Hardcover) Have had the pleasure of cruising to the Caribbean several times and do love it. I like to get coffee table books to add to my library. I was a seller of books in retail. And I have quite a library to go to for reference whenever I want. Love it! This book was such a good deal. And each new book I get fills in a space where I might not have gotten many pictures or gotten to that specific island. So muchfun to page through and remember. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 15, 2014

    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

    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?)
