Caribbean Comment is the work of Dennis Jones. I am an economist with an international financial institution, currently taking a period of leave without pay. I was born in Jamaica, but migrated to England as a young boy in the early 1960s, and spent most of the time up until my mid-30s in England. I then moved to Washington, DC in the 1990s. I have travelled extensively and worked in French-speaking west Africa during 2003-6, seeing at first hand the lowest levels of third world life.
I am new to blogging and am using it as a way of helping to organize some thoughts around a range of issues that affect the Caribbean, and at the same time sharing those thoughts with those who visit this blog.
