This chapter shows the positive effects of globalization on the economies of small Caribbean states. For instance, the tourism and banking economies of Cayman and the British Virgin Islands have prospered, while most of their larger neighbors had minimal growth; Trinidad and Tobago also flourished in terms of oil and natural gas reserves. Jamaica has fluctuated between periods of marginal growth to no growth at all, fitting into the pattern of many middle-income, non-oil producing countries. A Constituent Assembly of the Jamaican People at Home and Abroad might be the key to a new national consensus, and would reexamine the present macroeconomic framework in order to spur growth and employment.

Keywords:   globalization, Caribbean states, Cayman Islands, British Virgin Islands, Trinidad, Tobago, Jamaica, macroeconomic framework
