LAWRENCE DUPREY was paid $1.1 billion from the deposits of CLICO policyholders in the five years prior to CL Financial seeking a billion dollar bailout from the Government.
This was the claim made by Neal Bisnath, the attorney from CLICO, as he sought to tie up a couple of “loose ends” at the Commission of Enquiry into the collapse of CL Financial and the Hindu Credit Union (HCU) at the Winsure Building, Richmond Street, Port of Spain, yesterday.
On Wednesday, Bisnath said Duprey, former executive chairman of CL Financial, was paid a monthly income of $5 million by subsidiary CLICO.
In addition to his yearly income, Duprey was also paid multi-million-dollar consultancy fees throughout the year, Bisnath said. In 2007 Duprey was paid $90 million, Bisnath said then. Read More »
Caribbean not faring well in global competitiveness
BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, Thursday September 8, 2011 – Only one Caribbean country ranks within the top 50 of the annual World Economic Forum Global Competitive Index and large regional economies such as Jamaica and the Dominican Republic have seen their rankings tumble several places.
The report, which was released Wednesday (September 7), revealed that Barbados was the only Caribbean country of the 142 ranked nations that came in above the 50-mark. Its global competitiveness was ranked at number 42, up one place from last year’s ranking. Read More »
Do we need defined hours of work any more?
By now, most people who work in the developed world have gotten used to the idea that the old nine-to-five routine is gradually becoming a thing of the past; plenty of people have shifts that start and end at different times, or they use job-sharing and other forms of flex-time.
Some don’t even have traditional jobs at all any more, thanks to the evolution of the “gig economy” and the increase in freelancing. All of which raises a question that seems even more appropriate with Labor Day around the corner: Are defined hours of work an anachronism that’s holding us back? Or is the freedom to work whenever we want something still reserved for a select few, and/or a trap that causes us to work more rather than less? Read More »

CARIBANNA is essentially the Canadian version of CARIFESTA. The Caribbean Festival of the Arts, showcasing the artesian skills, the culture, the music, the wining, the grinding, the smoking, the sexting, the drinking and the eating of the halaal-beef wraps. It is a perennial love fest between and among the host country, the deep seated Caribbean and the interlocking communities in multi-racial, multi-ethnic Toronto.
Caribbean people live each day counting down for the next Caribanna, planning, scheming, thinking what they will wear, how they look and how it-go-look off Young street or in the playpen now designated to maintain law and order.
Caribanna is the mecca for typee. Big men, proud men, loud men, sleep and come while others come and sleep so that they will not miss a event, eyeballing and trying to figure out who is who and whose they are. Some men come to integrate, others to gyrate while another set, come packing. Caribanna was never meant to be a proving ground or an arena for settling old scores. It is about we and how-we-do what we do. It is about the scholarship, turning the rejections and recessions into new vistas and avenues for change. Over the decades, scores of careers have been launched and cottage industries established. The secret is about your net worth is influenced by your network. Read More »
