Last month the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) published a paper ‘Chinese rise in the Caribbean – What does it mean for Caribbean Stakeholders?’. Although, in its conclusions, it said little more than a number of Caribbean commentators have observed previously, it is important for three reasons.

Firstly, it disaggregates the Caribbean from the more usual approach whereby multilateral institutions write or speak about China in the context of the Americas, as if Latin America and the Caribbean were some coherent entity; secondly, the research-based study focuses on the economic benefits that might accrue from a more strategic approach; and thirdly, it encourages the region to be forward looking about what it wants out of its long term relationship with Beijing.     Continue reading

President David Granger

President David Granger, today, called on the members of the Regional Democratic Council (RDC) of Mahaica-Berbice (Region 5) to end the months long impasse, which had been sparked after the Regional Chairman, Mr. Vickchand Ramphal had been absent, during several visits to the Region by the Head of State.

However, President Granger called for an end to the standoff, which had seen some Council members staging protest action at Council meetings, demanding an apology from the Regional Chairman for what they believed was an act of disrespect to the President.  However, the Chairman was present at the Emancipation Day Celebrations in Ithaca, West Bank Berbice, today, where the President called on all Council members to let ‘bygones be bygones’ for the good of the Region.   Continue reading

Profile: Mohan Nandu – Guyana’s Singing Legend

By Dr Dhanpaul Narine

Mohan Nandu is one of the greatest singers that Guyana has produced. When he begins to sing you would think that the Lord descended from the mountaintop and handed him the voice to entertain thousands.

Mohan is a simple and humble person that would politely disagree. But give him a harmonium and back-up musicians and he would transport you to a world in which he becomes the King of Melody. After listening to him you get the feeling that Mohan Nandu was born to sing.

Starving Billionaires

Debt has been the wealth of the rich. David Korten warned us of “When Corporation Rule The World” that it would result in an instability that would ruin the lives of many – as major banks like Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase & Barclays have run our world into a colossal derivatives bubble of some $800 trillion and growing. Although most are asking for greater accountability given a market out of control which keeps pressing an ideology of rapacious exploitation of environmental resources, as well as bedeviling the lives of the working poor with a debt mountain to climb – hardly ever seeing any individuals held responsible for their failures and negative outcomes brought about by their gambling actions.

Put Away the Fireworks… You Don’t Live in a Democracy Anymore

Three Worlds One Vision

Within the last 30 years, while we’ve chased bogeymen overseas and here at home, our Democracy has fallen. We have been taken over; defeated; our voices neutered; our freedoms trampled; our democracy vanquished.No invading force accomplished this; no jackboots echoed across our republic; no alien flag was raised above our lands. Not a single shot was fired by our vaunted military to halt this takeover. No, this was a quiet coup, accomplished from within, and conducted in stealth.
