Chapter 1 of the study introduces the Caribbean economies, describing what they produce, their trading patterns, their levels of development and selected institutional features. Chapter 2 discusses commodity price trends, financial market changes and other aspects of the world environment as they affected the Caribbean. This is followed by five chapters on country performance, one each for Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago, and a single chapter for the remaining English-speaking countries. In each case we discuss the prospects in 1970, the subsequent performance, the economic consequences of world economic instability, and the policy response, ending with our own assessment. Chapter 8 deals with regional economic association, its intentions, its successes and its contributions to the economic development strategy. The final chapter is the overall assessment.
