I have a new piece up on http://www.policyplay.com today, click the link above to read. It is about a new multilateral economic development initiative here in the Caribbean. There is never a shortage of such projects, however, I was prompted to write about it after hearing the reaction of a Jamaican who could be a beneficiary of the project. I thought the reaction was interesting because it illustrates the sometimes divergent approaches that donor and beneficiaries take to these kinds of initiatives. On the ground and policy creation sometimes align, sometimes they do not, even if intentions are good. It will be instructive to see how this program rolls out. Take a read and enjoy your Wednesday.
