    Equitable distribution of tourism profits

    Jamaica is a land with many riches and quite a few rich people. However, the country remains desperately poor. It is a land where the biggest net earner is probably the illegal drugs and black market trade followed by remittances, then tourism. We are a people who are, in...

    Sunday, May 20th 2018 was a landmark date for both Venezuela and the rest of the world. The people of that country stood up to the combined might of the G7 and its leader, the US, to overwhelmingly re-elect Nicolas Maduro. Such an act may seem simple to some...

    Now is the time for serious land reform

    Land and the ownership of it is a touchy topic. From Scotland to Zimbabwe, the topic stirs many emotions and talking-points. From Guatemala to Vietnam we see where land reform can lead to violent conclusions. The situation in Jamaica is no different, where for centuries the topic of land,...

    Back to Africa

    Marcus Garvey is rightly lionized as one of the key figures behind the pan-African movement.

    The bigger picture in the CRH debacle

    With the recent scandal at the Cornwall Regional Hospital (CRH), the nation is up in arms. People are foaming at the mouth, rightly so, wondering why individuals —doctors and patients — were forced to occupy a hospital which was in such a bad condition. People are incredulous and rightfully...
