The Caribbean, From Vulnerability to Sustained Growth

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

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.

    Intro to Pirates

    First published in 1898, at a time when pulp-fiction was hitting its stride with wild west stories, Stockton presents us with a series of semi-biographies of pirates from the 18th century and later. He focuses primarily on the buccaneers, but verges over into the Golden Age of Piracy for the last few pirates. The list of pirates chronicled include: Peter the Great (aka Pierre Le Grand), Bartholemy Portuguez, John Esquemeling, Roc Braziliano, Francois L'Olonnois, Henry Morgan, Raveneau de Lussan, Blackbeard (aka Edward Teach), Stede Bonnet, Richard Worley, Mary Read, Anne Bonny, Edward Low, Jean Lafitte and William Kidd.There is a basis in fact, much of it taken from the writing of John Esquemeling. The author has also seen fit to flesh out the stories with fictional bits, meant to make for more entertaining reading (a la pulp fiction). And, it is entertaining reading. The stories have also been sanitized for younger readers, so parents do not need to worry about excessive... 4/5 David Stapleton (California) - See all my reviews, May 11, 2005

    Highly interesting as you go along....

    0 5/5 Pierce Erikson (Indiana, PA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Buccaneers and Pirates of Our Coasts (Kindle Edition) My appetite for more on the subject of the history of piracy was whetted by this series of accounts.The somewhat archaic language in which the accounts were written was a little daunting at first, but as I went along I developed a familiarity with it that carried me through.What made the book exceptional was the closeness to the subject matter of its author. This gave it a ring of authenticity that I thought more modern accounts don't quite have. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 5, 2012

    Every elementary school child should read this.

    0 5/5 Sandi - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Buccaneers and Pirates of Our Coasts (Kindle Edition) After reading fictional pirate stories, it was very interesting to read about some real life pirates. This FREE book was better than some books I've paid for. It really adds to the history and geography of this country, as well as others, to read about how prominent a place the pirates played in our history. Who knew Christopher Columbus was one of the first pirates to come to this country and was a slave trader, kidnapping natives of the West Indies and selling them as slaves in Spain until old Queen Isabella caught him and set them free? The kids would remember history like this. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 14, 2013
