Jamaica and the United States Caribbean Basin Initiative: Showpiece Or Failure?
The Caribbean Basin Initiative, the most recent of a long list of United States policy initiatives in Latin America and the Caribbean, continues to intrigue readers. This study is an analysis of United States Foreign Policy in the Caribbean and Central America in general, and Jamaica in particular with special emphasis on the Caribbean Basin Initiative. The study focuses on answering a number of important questions regarding the impact of the CBI on the economic and socio-political conditions of the Island-Nation brought on earlier by the turbulent US/Jamaica relations of the Michael Manley administration, 1972-1980.
