    After many years of observation I have come to the conclusion that one useless individual is a shame, two is a law firm and three or more is parliament.

    Is there any medical condition associated with getting bad feels whenever you see Freundel or Stinkliar, Some type of psychological distress.
    I think the images of the two of them is what has caused such a negativity in the country. To know your country is being led by two inept incompetent pieces of drift wood. How can a people not be insecure and negative!

    Sinckler has distinguished himself now as being the ABSOLUTE WORST Minister of Finance, Barbados has ever had in its history.
    Notice that whenever he is not given a script to read, he attacks people.

    I feel sorry for him because he is a fool and he knows not that he is a fool.

    How much longer will we allow this goon to lead our public finances? Even Gearbox or NinjaMan would do better.

    Surprised that there seems to have been no comments on BU re. Prof Howard’s reasoned call for an early invitation for assistance by the IMF and an equally reasoned rebuff by an apparently very knowledgeable and calm MOF. He was very impressive in his interview by Stetson Babb yesterday. I heard most of it.

    Just to note that in every instance of the IMF being invited to countries in this region there is spirited denial up to the day of the announcement of the invitation.

  6. @are-we-there-yet

    If the IMF comes in with a restructuring plan, it will mean the loss of sovereignty, if only for the period of the rescue mission.
    As your name implies, are we there yet? In any case, Prof Howard should have a word with his colleague, Frank Alleyne, who thinks the economy is competently managed.

  7. are-we-there-yet?

    Hal Austin;
    In this case, I say Sovereignty, Smovreignty! Sovreignty pales in importance and significance when viewed against the unwonted effects of the likely debt cycle if Barbados postpones and mistimes an approach to the IMF. As you implied the loss of sovereignty will be only for the period of the invited IMF intervention and it seems logical that the longer the Government takes to call for that intervention the longer will be the period of that loss in sovereignty. But of course, the Chinese and / or other sources of expensive usurious loans may make it unnecessary to call in the IMF. Only time will tell.

    I have now lost much of the respect I had for my friend Dr. Frank Alleyne. His performances over the past couple of years indicate that he should have opted out of the positions he still retains some time ago. His analyses seem flawed and very partisan. Prof Howard is still in the Economic saddle and is much more believable at this time.

    Are we there yet? I think we are, given the information in the public domain. But am I sure? the MoF’s interview yesterday was reasoned and much more mature than I have heard him for sometime and gave some assurance but there were several opt out phrases and words that suggests we are probably there.

  8. I find it disappointing that people in power still seem to take Frank Alleyne seriously. He should be quietly relieved of his public responsibilities.
    I am sorry I missed the MoF interview and VoB does not do podcast.
    Sadly, I cannot rely on the printed media for an accurate report, with the exception of BU..

    Does anyone have the link of the interview Stinkliar had with Stetson Babb?

  10. LIKE IT OR LUMP IT

    I will be respectful to my elders and say to Frank Alleyne, your sell-by-date has expired. Those old philosophies you expound are irrelevant in today’s world. Frank my friend, you are stuck in a time zone in the mid-20th Century but we need forward thinkers for the 21st century and beyond.

  12. Since when we need someone from university to tell us that we CANNOT continue spending more than we are earning and not expect to become someone’s slaves?
    Since when we need the IMF to come in to add up our expenses and income and to:
    -CALCULATE OUR DEBTS AND ARRANGE THEIR REPAYMENT
    -REDUCE OUR EXPENSES TO WITHIN OUR INCOME
    -MAKE HARD DECISIONS AND ADJUSTMENTS ACCORDINGLY
    ????
    Shiite man!
    Only CHILDREN should need such basic guidance and discipline …..oh yea….and brass bowls.

    You are simplifying the problem, you are belittling macro economics, you are disregarding behavioural economics, hell you are not giving credit that people understand externalities.
