Barbados Doing Well Against the Odds

I heard on BBC today that thousands more will lose their jobs in England, and that country is on the verge of a triple dip recession. Ironically, the IMF is urging David Cameron and George Osbourne to ease up on the austerity measures. Yet, despite the ravages of the worse recession since the 1930s, we in Little England, with no resources,  are keeping our heads above water and trying to hold our own..

Ours is not the best, but we are doing much better than scores of other developed and developing countries. Owen Arthur and his party that left a mountain of debt can’t do any better than us. He doesn’t have a magic wand. All he has is cheap talk and gimmicks. We must stress that.

If OSA has the answers, he should tell Christine Lagarde, Obama, Cameron, Hollande, Antonis Samaras, Portia Simpson, Kenny Anthony, etc. OSA is like Mitt Romney, a pipe-dreamer.

  1. @Smooth Chocolate- Your post was both inaccurate and nonsensical. The economics was overshadowed by pure politics. Unfortunately many like you in the BLP feel that they must create the impression that everyone else is doing well so as to intensify the blame game on the current government.

    Tourism dependent economies in the Caribbean have all been negatively affected.We cannot run away from that but to come and suggest that St. Lucia with over 20% unemployment, a huge and burgeoning fiscal deficit and with nearly all the makjor tourism real estate projects in receivership like The Landings is doing better than Barbados is to overstep the bounds of economic and social reality. Barbados is doing much better than many of its Caricom neighbours .That is a fact.

    The BLP have risen to the occasion many times in the past.Mistakes might be made but the BLP has a tradition of good solid governance and the ability to attract investment which we need like yesterday.Sadly,one got the impression that the DLP is nothing without Errol Barrow.Sandy was a monumental failure,oversaw a lot of wastage and almost devalued our currency with stupid policies that made sense to him only.We were at the stage where BST dropped a hint that they would with hold taxes due and it was subsequently denied by the DLP knight in there.
    Now we have a worse situation in which the contributors to forex is dwindling and there is little hope of the administration pulling it back.They were never up to it when PM Thompson was at the helm stumbling from one mistake to the next, and its worse under Stuart who cannot and will not trust his colleagues.It appears to many that that mistrust is mutual.
    The BLP has the combination of expertise and know how to bring Barbados back to a state of growth.They have done it before and can do it again and most importantly most investors seem to have confidence in the Barbados Labour Party and its policies based on the economic data thats out there.

    ROFLMAO!!! You really don’t want to start. You’re relying on information provided by corrupt organizations paid off by huge multinational corporations. I don’t care what the HDI says as we still have Bajans living in SHANTY TOWNS AS OF 2013!! We produce not one single thing get shit keeps falling from your mouth and is smeared across your eyes. You should be reading what the Credit agencies such as Moody’s as well as Standard & Poor’s to get a true understanding of how economics works. You my simple-minded friend, have absolutely NO KNOWLEDGE of how macroeconomics works. I grow tired of explaining it to the likes of simpletons such as yourself because you still wish to play “know-it-all” even when you are CLEARLY in the wrong. An ass wouldn’t walk off the ledge of a mountain; but a fool such as yourself would be inclined to jump off it, eating the falsities fed to you by “internationally renowned” organizations. Mind you financial agencies such as the Lehman Brothers of the U.S. were once considered “too big to fail” but fell HARD. Bim’s economy is literally on the fringes.

    Unenlightened parties such as yourself wouldn’t even know how to measure growth and productivity, let alone know how to parse out superficial jargon meant to appease stupid investors. Even a clown would know that our economy is literally on a thread and all it would take is one little nudge from a globalized financial crisis to throw this country into complete ruin. An idiot would also note that Bim is Highly dependent on the cash of tourists from 1st world countries ie. Britain,Canada, and the U.S.; it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that should those countries falter, BIM will Fall even harder. I would call you an idiot, but even that would be a compliment to someone who lacks any form of a serious thought process such as yourself. Hence my time would be wasted on the likes of you… (-_-)

  6. Let us be fair, this recession has hit every tourism dependent economy in Caricom extremely hard. Opposition parties from Jamaica in the North to even oil rich Trinidad in the South have capitalised on these tough economic times and tried to blame the local governments for all that was happening. I even saw the BLP trying to pin the Almond Resort closure on the government when Neal & Massy wanted out of the hotel business for quite a few years.
    Nevertheless, politics is politics so we will continue to hear how hard it has been over the past few years and try to blame the lack of tourists spending money on the current goverment.
    I personally think that the government has done an excellent job with the hand that they were given.The huge public service wage bill was not created by this government but what is apparent is that structural changes that needed to be made to this economy over the last 20 years were postponed as we rode a global bubble which was bound to burst at some point. We are now at an important crossroad. If some Bajans believe that there is an economic magician who will make this bad recession go away, they are sorely mistaken.

That is designed to catch votes and placate the big financial donors in the private sector who are stuck in the old ways of doing things. That is why Trinidad was eating our lunch even in the so called good times.

    President Obama stepped in to save the auto industry, had to because the auto industry affects a lot of businesses big and small – lots of jobs. The DLP maybe wanted to save some of those hotel and small business closing but couldn’t. The DLP is not responsible for Al Barack, the millions over-budgeted [Dodds Prison Project], the 2.4 million dollar loss [Nigerian Water Heater Project]. It can’t possibly take responsibility for the tourism industry near death because of a global weakened economy. It did not attempt to replace revenue lost from tourism and is fault for that. Barbados relies on too few things to survive, mainly tourism. Tourism in Barbados is Plan A and plan A right now is not productive – not enough. A plan B is needed, NOW.

  18. @ Miller – The increase in debt will occur in times of recession as government’s finances are challenged. Tourism is the driver of our economy with thousands of jobs and linkages. With a drop in tourism spend, there will also be a drop in demand for these services and consequently a rise in unemployment and this has a ripple effect in the economy. The government’s revenue is affected with less tax take and in Barbados Government moved speedily to implement the Tourism Relief Fund to stabilise the industry. Therefore there needed to be support for these entities in an effort to minise the likelihood of widescale job losses and widescale hotel closures.Knowing that there would be challenges, there was also an effort to maintain support for the vulnerable in our society – hence an increase in the Income Tax credit and payments for the disabled and welfare recipients. The energy grant was implemented so that the poor would not be further impacted by the rise in global fuel prices. The government also implemented the accrual system of accounting where expenses were reported in the period incurred.
    This government has done an exceptional job in some very trying circumstances. The BLP never had to deal with an international recession like this so to say that there was economic growth under on party and sluggish growth under the other is a statement that must be examined in context as the condtions prevailing were vastly different.

    “The government also implemented the accrual system of accounting where expenses were reported in the period incurred.”

    That’s a blatant lie and you deceitfully know that this DLP administration came to power and found such a system in place started under the previous administration but became expansively operational by the Ministry of Finance as set out in loan agreements to improve fiscal management and reporting system of the government. Hence the need to ‘bring to book’ the so-called off-balance sheet financing projects.

    We must therefore take what you wrote above with a large measure of skepticism and as uninformed political hogwash dressed up as desperate partisan propaganda.

    But one thing you are genuine about is that the DLP administration is full of magical talent as far as managing the economy. What you have outli(n)ed is not attempts at restructuring the economy but just a continuation of the same old same dependence on fickle tourism and int’l business. The only difference is that this DLP administration came to the brilliant conclusion they can earn their financial stripes in managing economy by using other people’s money (OPM) without concern for its repayment.
    Which business entity whether at the private sector or at the State level can survive by borrowing consistently to meet its current or operational expenses like wages and salaries and failure to meet its current liabilities for goods and services?
    If this DLP has a Cabinet with superior skill sets to any previous one, then explain the following:

    How come many of the revenues raising measures authored by Darcy Boyce like taxes on cell phones, lottery winnings, bicycle licencing remain largely un-implementable?

    How come Jepter Ince, in his erudite rendition of Finance esoterica and fiscal propriety, does not know the difference between a “Fiscal” Deficit and a “Physical” one?

    Why is Sir Frank always used as the chief spokesman for the Dems on all matters of economics even though he claims he is independent and not an inside bosom placed ardent member of that party. Where in this current Cabinet can be found a loyal well-trained economist -whether wooden or crystal- that can speak with the technical competence and authority (as can be found in the BLP) on such matters instead of outsourcing these skills?

    Why is the current Minster of Finance so inconsistently unreliable in his projections and implementation of promises but at the same time has a corrupting penchant for unjustified discrimination in the granting of tax concessions to forex consuming (instead of generating) commercial ventures?

    How can a person be described as being in possession of magical skill sets when so much tax revenues remain outstanding in the face of a fiscal crisis which according to that person cannot be ‘wrestled to the ground’ solely by cutting expenditure and sending home civil servants. The majority of the tax revenues that remain outstanding are not of a result of underperforming business activity but criminal failure of the fraudulent business managers to pay over the VAT collected directly from customers and PAYE and NI contributions docked from the pay of hardworking employees.

    How can Chris Sinckler review the provisions of the IADB loan agreement and compare the agreed fiscal targets against his dismal and abjectly poor performance and then come to the fore to receive credits from the like of you, “!”, instead of junk status downgrade by the int’l credit rating agencies?
    The performance of the Governor (a creature in the image of the same MoF) will be for another occasion.

    “How can a person be described as being in possession of magical skill sets when so much tax revenues remain outstanding in the face of a fiscal crisis”
    A basic flaw in your analysis – these statutory arrears in vat payments, NIS, etc were growing when Owen Arthur was Minister of Finance – a point which you probably conveniently forgot to mention. So this DLP government should have gone and extracted all the arrears that were built up from 1994 – 2007 and then people like you would be crying about the harm done to the private sector.

    Since the accrual system became operational under this government, obviously they had to ‘bring to book’ the so-called off-balance sheet financing projects. This needs to be factored in as you look at the debt figures because we all know that the BLP was involved in massive off budget spending – remember your new friend Clyde Mascoll complaining about BLP off budget spending.

    The foreign reserves that the BLP speaks of were as a result of borrowings and not spectacular foreign exchange earnings so those reserves were accompanied by increase debt repayments.

    As for economists who can speak with technical competence – listen you are getting confused – not every economist is a politician. Arthur is a politician and so is Mascoll , therefore they twist the economic jargon to accomodate their political objective. Arthur and Mascoll are certainly not more competent or experienced than Darcy Boyce but Darcy is not a campaign speaker. Your point is ridiculous.Eg: Arthur will say Government needs to cut expenditute- an economist can say that means significant cuts to the wage bill and sending home people. Arthur and Mascoll have a political objective so they will never admit that publicly.

    My point remains – there is no magic about the BLP and to all those BLP supporters like you , who are tired hearing about the global economy – I am still waiting for an answer – Please show me one point over the last 50 years under any Prime Minister including your boy Arthur when our major trading partners were in recession and the Barbados economy was booming.

Barbados beyond tourism perhaps considers exporting (sugarm molasses and rum) its plan B. If so, Plan B consumes small amounts of revenue – smaller than tourism. Additional products, therefore are needed for export but primarily for domestic use. Barbados likely could harvest basic food items it now imports from neighboring islands in the caribbean simply to reduce its food import bill; the country is falling apart and or standing on its last leg, now – right now.

    And a wise one would be quick to ask Ms Mottley who it is that is paying for and running these ads, and while at it that person should also ask her why has she allowed Noot Rudder and his gay band to destabalise Ronald Toppin and why is it that the PA to Forde has been canvassing in St James North against the sex pervert Hinkson?
    Mottley has no interest in a BLP win at this election with Arthur still stumbling around the party, she will hang him out to dry this time around and send him away and run her own campaign 5 years hence forth.

    There is no one that is within the Inner circle of the Mottley dynasty that will tell you anything other than she has a plan to unseat Arthur and Payne, Marshall and Toppin all of whom set out to destroy her well being.

    There is no dispute that she has been having that destabalising program undertaken in the constituencies of Toppin and Hinkson, I know for a fact of life from the mouth of Rudder himself in a place in Black Rock and I know for a fact of three days of canvassing in St James North with Forde’s PA in Sion Hill to persuade BLP voters to vote for the DEMS, not a moment of hearsay my friend but a fact of life, you may not want it said as it dispels the rumour of peace in your party but life is what it is and Mottley has been doing whatsoever she needs to do to keep herself in the frame for the next election when Arthur will be a thing of the past.

    Also have you noticed the backward and junior position she has been assigned to speak in these platform speeches a very very junior position an also ran position.

    Ps can you see Arthur having to step down as Prime Minister and leaving the country in the hands of Dale Marshall were he to win his seat ?

    I think the real difference is that the Canadian does not have a track record of abuse of her female sex partners, she maybe is free from the history of vicious beating and furious biting as handed and bite out by Mottley.

    Nor is she one who determined if some should stay or leave the country by if that person was willing to submit her body to Mottley for it to suffer its abuse and STRAP Lashes, as one Guyanese was forced to take to have her Work Permit granted, those are immoral and sick reactions by a sick an immoral Mottley person

    You are waiting for what? For the miller to respond to your much discredited cesspool of lies?
    You know very well that those so-called off-balance sheet financing projects like the Prison and Highway expansion were brought to proper book from current expenditure in prior years to capital expenditure in the fiscal year ended March 2008. The massive increase in the national debt after that year cannot be attributed to those book-keeping adjustments.
    Any thing you say after that is infected by a trojan horse of lies and red herrings.

    If Darcy the buoyant quisling is such a great economist why isn’t he the Minister of Finance instead of a buffoon of an empty-headed bullfrog lying in his own filth of corruption and broken promises?

    Why isn’t Darcy charged specifically for the restart of the Four Season project, or if he is, what is really going on there? Put on eternal hold like the cell phone tax and additional impositions on already taxed lottery winnings?

    One notices you conveniently avoided any reference to the other two arm chair economists in the form of the boisterous doctor of ‘play-play’ economics pretending to be a gun slinger at the OK Coral of Finance and the tongue twisted Jepter the ghost of CLICO mismanagement who does know his fiscal elbow from his physical asshole.

Bush congradulated President Obama and its members of the military after learning that the United States has successfully killed Usama bin Landen [a notorious terrorist] but ultimately stays clear of politics and or political matters. He, George W. Bush did not participate in the 2012 Republican National Convention (Tampa, Florida). He also did not participate in President Obama’s 2nd oath of office. President Obama’s 2nd oath of office occured with only ex-president, Bill Clinton and ex-president, Jimmy Carter.

    It’s possible the BLP could win the upcoming general election. The DLP though may win, it’s possible. If the DLP faces defeat, Stuart hopefully will leave politics and not come back. If the BLP faces defeat, Arthur hopefully will leave politics and not come back. The BLP administration with Arthur at the help (1994 – 2008) yielded more negative than positive that formulated lots of embarrassment. The DLP administration with Stuart (2010 – 2012) contributed nothing of significance – didn’t know what to do with what was put before it, because the previous administration before it did not know what in the hell they were doing

    That is why all of our neighbouring countries that voted back in former Prime Ministers are still smelling hell because they thought that bringing back the former Prime Minister would mean a return to the economic growth of a different time. It did not happen there and sorry to tell you Barbados does not exist in a vaccum.
