THE CARIBBEAN MUST BE CONSCIOUS ABOUT EXPANDING THEIR MIDDLE-CLASS

http://www.jamaicaobserver.com/columns/ … ofile=1097

I just came across this very interesting article in the Jamaican Observer. I realize that the Caribbean has been short of a middle-class population since their independence.  This fact changes the dynamics of our values tremendously. All Scandinavian countries have a thriving middle-class and that is why crime rate is so low in them. Our values are diminishing quickly. Our high poverty rate due to lack of employment and scarce opportunity for high education rank us at the very bottom. We have to be conscious about changing this.

The Caribbean has a history of promoting scholars  but what we need are more men like Michael Chin lee-- Men who know how to build empires.
