This chapter discusses the impact of the Great Sugar Depression of 1929 on the Guyanese and West Indian peoples. Webber attributed the country’s economic decline to the crushing debt that the colony carried, the ill-fortune that befell the sugar and rice industries, and the failure of government to foster any development schemes in the interior that had been advocated from time to time.
