DNA: Information Equals Power - Jun 30, 2016 - 7:29:57 PM

Unlike in days past, technology has become the foundation upon which our global society is built; and in this new age, knowledge and information have become the currency used to advance not only individuals, but entire nations. The correlation between information and power cannot be overstated. The world is filled with countless examples of the strides that have been made where information is made freely available to those seeking it.

Conversely, the world is also filled with examples of how failing to empower people through the access to information can have a negative impact. Sadly, the Bahamas continues to be counted among a small group of nations who continue to disadvantage its people by restricting access to information...

Swimming Skills Critical as The Bahamas Prepares for Active 2016 Storm Season - Jun 30, 2016 - 5:14:18 PM

sm-YMCA-cheque.jpg
On September 27, 2015, Hurricane Joaquin rose up out of the Atlantic Ocean without warning, decimating the southern and central Bahamas as it rapidly intensified from a strong tropical storm to a powerful Category 4 hurricane in a mere 39 hours. One of the most devastating storms to hit the country in more than two centuries, flooding from storm surge and torrential rainfall left hundreds of Bahamians trapped without shelter, power or food. Swimming to safety was their only option.

Now, just four weeks into the 2016 Atlantic Hurricane Season and with four named storms already on the books, meteorologists are predicting an even more active storm season than last year...

Youri Kemp: The PLPs Fiscal Consolidation is a Failure - Jun 30, 2016 - 12:04:49 PM


Recent reports from The Inter-American Development Bank, in their Caribbean Region Quarterly Bulletin, state clearly that the fiscal consolidation plan of the current administration is all but a failure. 


In a DNA release published on April 20th, 2016, with regard to the then released Standard and Poor’s analysis on the Bahamian economy, we outlined clearly how we felt about the government’s fiscal consolidation effort and we quote: “… the (DNA) questions about this fiscal consolidation and how can it be holding firm as suggested, when spending is still way out of control, the deficit, while touted to be reduced, may experience a sudden burst in borrowings by the end of the fiscal year and also when it is patently obvious that there is little to no growth to extract taxes from?”

Op-Ed: Supporting Innovation and Entrepreneurship through the Modernization of Government Services - Jun 30, 2016 - 1:30:18 AM

In this digital age, more and more governments are making the shift to online services to promote the expediency of the delivery of services, as well as to facilitate growth for business stakeholders. From the perspective of the Government of The Bahamas, modernizing government services is essential, especially if we are to tap into the potential of young Bahamians, our future generation.

I believe that with the right conditions, talented young Bahamians are poised to change the world. Improvements in the capacity of government to deliver services will not only support innovation and entrepreneurship, but will also increase productivity and create cost savings for businesses, simplify citizen interactions with government, reduce the cost of the public sector and increase government revenues.
