This authoritative anthology contains papers which examine economic and monetary policy-making in the English speaking Caribbean from 1975 to 1985, during major shifts in the economies of those nations. The papers grew out of the 20th Annual Caribbean Regional Programme of Monetary Studies conference. They cover a number of areas, including money, finance, trade, payments, prices, exchange rates, and economic cooperation. This work is an excellent resource for courses in development, international economics, international business, and Latin America. The articles first focus on the uses of monetary policy in the Caribbean, ways of adjusting the balance of external payments, and the design of fiscal policy. Contributors then examine specific policies undertaken in each currency area in the region, identifying what worked and what did not. Finally, an agenda for ongoing research into the features, problems, and potentials of the Caribbean is outlined.
