Jamaica

  • South – South endeavours

        At the risk of engaging in juvenile simplicity, it is clear to me that if we, collectively, can get more Jamaican companies, whether large, medium or small, to become more profitable, to employ more persons , to become more efficient, and generally to become more successful and...
  • The irony of Jamaica

  • Strong reflections needed on our self-inflicted wounds

            Although we live in a small country of less than 5,000 sq. miles, and many onlookers would be tempted to accept a view of homogeneity, to do so would be a great mistake for this our island home, Jamaica. The collective descriptions and positioning belie...
