    IF WE ARE TO CONTINUE ACCEPTING AID…….

    Aid is generally not something to be scorned. Most times, in fact, aid and assistance are much appreciated and needed. Be it war, be it famine, be it some earth-shattering event, aid in most cases is generally looked upon as a good thing. Aid, as I say, is not...
  • A case for collective farming

          Jamaican farming is crucial. There is no other way to put it. Farming is one of the nation’s key pillars. The sector employs thousands of people directly (and an even greater number indirectly) and is, as anyone who understands nations knows, a lynchpin in either the survival...

    Unions need to demand smart and in unison

    The past decade has seen public sector workers going through the ringer as it relates to pay. With the rate of inflation always in the back of one’s mind, the workers have had to endure a severe wage freeze or a wage increase so minuscule that when adjusted for...

    The more politicians promise change, the more things remain the same

    Change is a word that is always on politicians’ lips. Change is something that most if not all politicians promise and it is so not just because politicians enjoy hearing themselves speak or are stuck in a loop, it is because most times a serious change is visibly needed for...

What with all the animosity, regional tension, economic tension and social tensions, CARICOM as it relates to harmonising and developing relationships throughout the region, is dead. The sad reality is that in spite of our common history and shared...
  • If you’re going to sell yourself, at least be expensive

    Jamaica has been selling off bits and pieces for ages, be it bauxite rights, our port (leased out) or even the sugar belt and Goat Island which has been granted to the Chinese.   This has naturally stirred nationalistic tendencies in us human beings who inhabit this island. We...
  • The Age of A.I and Robots

    Artificial Intelligence (or AI as it is more commonly known as) is fast improving as are robots. They are improving at such a rapid pace that it is very realistic that in the next ten to twenty years we will be witnessing AI and robots taking over jobs that...

    ZOSO will be a dud

    Finally, after over a year of dilly-dallying the Government has passed a bill aimed at ridding the nation of violence (mainly caused by gangs and inflicted by the gun). The bill sailed through the lower House with bi-partisan approval, and although the debate in the Senate went on for...
