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.

    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?)

    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?)

This review is from: Empire's Crossroads: A History of the Caribbean from Columbus to the Present Day (Kindle Edition) There is a need for this informative book as the history of the Caribbean is so interrelated with the history of the American South. This book explains how all of the islands are connected to so many different countries. I enjoyed reading this book.
