This chapter examines the period from 1997–2006, which involved the St. Lucia Labor Party’s (SLP) return to political power, resulting in tensions between an earlier radicalism and a new and contradictory accommodation to global neoliberalism. The discussions cover the Left compromise to globalization; economic policy of the SLP in government between 1997 and 2006; the Labour Code and the SLP defeat; and the efficacy of the Left compromise to neoliberalism.

Keywords:   St. Lucia, Labor Party, SLP, radicalism, neoliberalism, globalization, economic policy, labor code
