The Caribbean, From Vulnerability to Sustained Growth

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

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.

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.

    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

    MUCH bigger than a "pocket guide" but chocked with info

    (Note: this book came from Amazon through its "Vine Reviewer" program which sends items for review to selected reviewers.)First off, this book is BIG (nearly 1200 pages!) and HEAVY ( well over TWO POUND!). So it's not a guide you will carry around with you - or probably even take on a plane. But it's a good PLANNING guidebook. It's also comprehensive since it covers 26 different islands, including all the "Saints". Unless you are on a VERY long vacation you will probably use the book in "spurts". We are going on a cruise and hitting five of the places and I found some useful info. But, of course, I didn't need a hotel and would not be there for nightlife.Most folks go to the Caribbean for beaches and water sports and this is the book's strong points. There are reviews of each beach and why you should, or shouldn't go there. And, of course, there is the basic info on car rentals and currency used in each island.Fodor's has a good reputation and the... 4/5 Steven I. Ramm "Steve Ramm "Anything Phon...

This review is from: Fodor's Caribbean 2013 (Full-color Travel Guide) (Kindle Edition) Firstly, I LOVE that this book is available on Kindle -- and it functions well within Kindle, especially website links and maps.As far as content, the book seems to be pretty complete in information about many islands. After my trip to the Caribbean I could provide more information about the accuracy of the information. I have found this a good way to get information about the islands without spending hours scouring the Internet. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 5, 2013

    Caribbean history in a nutshell - as good as it gets

    The Caribbean is a challenging place for which to write a regional history. The author of «A Concise History of the Caribbean», B.W. Higman, puts the reader on notice about this situation at the very beginning of the book: "The history of the Caribbean has its special difficulties, particularly because of the large number of states, polities, and islands in the region, all of them with their own individual as well as shared histories." To complicate matters, there were also several colonial powers involved in the historical dynamics of the region, and events affecting them elsewhere in the world would tend to have direct repercussions on the Caribbean territories, often forcefully. And finally, the peoples who gave rise to that history, and still do, arguably represent the most eclectic mix of cultures ever assembled in any regional epic of humanity, involving numerous languages and ethnicities from each of the following meta-groups: Native Americans, Southern and Northern Europeans,... 5/5 Diego Azeta (San Juan, Puerto Rico) - See all my reviews This review is from: A Concise History of the Caribbean (Cambridge Concise Histories) (Paperback) The Caribbean is a challenging place for which to write a regional history.

    A Concise Review

    Higman aims to provide a succinct and abridged history of the Caribbean to a general audience, from pre-Columbian times to the present. Acknowledging first the problems that confront any attempt at coherently defining “the Caribbean,” he limits his survey to the island societies of Spanish, Dutch, French, and English heritage, omitting such territories as Florida or the Guyanas. Higman organizes the matter chronologically, starting with a synopsis of the region’s formative and ongoing geological activity and a brief biogeography. Maps and graphics of prehistoric Taíno artifacts are used to help illustrate this “ancient archipelago.” Columbus’s four journeys to the Caribbean introduce consequences of culture-contact and prepare for environmental, economic, and social transformations that become more apparent at the end of the “second sixteenth century” (1530-1630). Slavery and its ends on plantations, backed with some... 5/5 landon yarrington - See all my reviews This review is from: A Concise History of the Caribbean (Cambridge Concise Histories) (Paperback) Higman aims to provide a succinct and abridged history of the Caribbean to a general audience, from pre-Columbian times to the present.
