Rand is a good writer and a solid economist, but, in this instance, he is far off his area of expertise — starting with his clear lack of knowledge about the beaches in Belize. As a homeowner in Central America — and a guy who has written about it for 15 years - I would suggest that he stick to providing expert assistance in helping the countries down there establish vibrant free market economies. We certainly don’t need to Caymanize Belize.
Could you elaborate, please? I've never been to either country and your opinion runs contrary to many of the others on this thread. I'd like to hear why. Thank you.
Because 13.1% unemployment is a good thing, and
Current concerns include the country's heavy foreign debt burden, high unemployment, growing involvement in the Mexican and South American drug trade, high crime rates, and one of the highest prevalence rates of HIV/AIDS in Central America.
Not to fear, Belize's greatest problem is their CULTURE, as their culture discourages education and achievement, and promotes the fast, easy dollar without the impediment of ethics, morals or laws. Hence, they are their own worst enemy. Whereas, you will find the exact opposite in the Caymans - and surprisingly, for some weird reason, they don't have these types of problems. What an amazing coincidence < /s>
