This chapter summarizes the preceding discussions and presents some final thoughts. It suggests that with the approach of the second decade of the twenty-first century, the possibility of another round of postcolonial political agitation is not farfetched as economic indicators approximating those of the Great Depression begin to emerge. Thus, the timid and limited understanding of the independent state as an instrument of economic and political empowerment of the mass of the population will come under scrutiny, as the economic and social conditions give rise to political agitation and deeper reflection in St. Lucia. It is in this context that possible responses by Caribbean states to neoliberal globalization and economic crises can be considered.
