Averting a Bahamas-China Rift over Baha Mar - Jul 4, 2015 - 1:47:58 PM

The occurrences surrounding the Baha Mar and China Construction America leave a questionable assumption of the macroeconomic implications that state-sponsored investments of Chinese companies in the Bahamas constitutes a risk involvement.

The relationship between the Bahamas and China has reached a pivotal moment as China begins courting Latin American and Caribbean countries being a symbol of economic relief amidst The United States pivot to East Asia and their continued meddling in the South China Sea territorial disputes...

The Way Forward: The Political Value of a Bankrupt Tourism Policy - Jul 3, 2015 - 12:53:33 PM

“If properly [sic] planned and allowed to grow unchecked, tourism can suffocate indigenous culture, destroy traditional values - aesthetic, moral and social, ruin architectural traditions, upset or even ruin the environment, encroach on areas which would best be used for other industrial activity, create imbalances in terms of foreign and local business ownership, divert workers from other important employment areas and contribute to an increase in crime.”
- Minister of Tourism, the Hon. Perry G. Christie

Is there a more germane statement that can be made today to describe the current dilemma we face in The Bahamas? With the conflict over Baha Mar and deteriorating social conditions, in one short paragraph the diagnosis is clear: We’ve allowed tourism to grow “unchecked”...
