This chapter examines the period from 1990–1997, which witnessed a heightened process of neoliberal adjustment in global trade that destroyed the banana industry and transformed the domestic political economy; the discussions cover global shifts in the 1990s that had far-reaching implications for the St. Lucia banana industry; neoliberal restructuring in the St. Lucia banana industry; political upheavals within the St. Lucia banana industry from 1992 onward, which coincided with the shifts in the global banana market; and deepening globalization and independent statehood.

Keywords:   banana industry, neoliberal restructuring, globalization, independent statehood
