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.

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.

    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

    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?)

    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

    The best guidebook to the Caribbean! By far!

    This is really the best guidebook to the Caribbean by far - and here is why:1) It covers The Bahamas. Technically not part of the Caribbean, culturally very much so. They are omitted in the Fodor's, Frommer's and Footprint publications. So if you want coverage of the full potential vacation region, you have to buy the Bahamas guidebooks they offer - and pay twice as much. And if you are buying the Caribbean in one package and not books on Jamaica, Puerto Rico etc all individually, you want it less detailed but all in one. The LP book has the same amount of details on the true Caribbean Islands as the competition (or more) but packs in the Bahamas too! Only Rough Guide covers The Bahamas, but the latest edition is waaaay out of date - 2008.2) It covers Haiti and Cuba. Haiti though not a touristy place is safe for tourists (despite what some media say) and is one of the best countries for culture and history enthusiasts in the region. Cuba is also an interesting... 5/5 Mike from Warsaw - See all my reviews This review is from: Lonely Planet Caribbean Islands (Travel Guide) (Paperback) This is really the best guidebook to the Caribbean by far - and here is why:1) It covers The Bahamas.

    Perfect choice for planning your Caribbean vacation

    A friend gave me this book after I stated that my new travel goal was to visit every Caribbean country. I have subsequently spent many happy hours paging through this guide planning future vacations.I sometimes find Lonely Planet guidebooks to be a little overwhelming, with their "include everything" approach. However, I think that tendency was somewhat constrained in this book by the need to cover the entire Caribbean in a single volume and, in my opinion, the guidebook is better for it. The first part of the book provides an overview of the region and gives you a quick glimpse of the character and major attractions of the various islands. Then, in alphabetical order, each individual nation is covered in greater detail. For each country, the guidebook tells you "Why Go?" and "When to Go," and offers suggested itineraries and recommendations about activities, lodging, restaurants, and transportation. There is also a section titled "Understanding [insert country name] with... 5/5 Vickie T. (Florida) - See all my reviews, April 28, 2012

    0 4/5 Lynn Dillman - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) 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
