Stanford affair and Caricom
Two recent events have reinforced our belief in the need for an urgent summit of Caribbean Community (Caricom) leaders to address the global credit crisis and its consequential effects on Caribbean economies.

Competitiveness: The opportunity of the global crisis
The Jamaican economy has long been in crisis. Our ballooning trade, current account and balance of payments deficits; our stagnant GDP, a chronically unstable currency and intractable state of lawlessness are so bad that the description 'crisis' almost seems a euphemism. - Claude Clarke

Jamaican culture

Clarke clueless on bauxite/alumina
The Editor, Sir: I write in connection with the furore over the situation in respect of Clarendon Alumina Production Ltd (CAP).
