Is this the best we can do?
The information technology revolution of the past three decades has made things once thought magical quite normal parts of life. On a smartphone you can have a video conference being in The Bahamas with someone in Australia; while on a vacation in Be...
 
 
The sound of noise
On Monday Prime Minister Perry Christie declared that if a plan such as the $2.1 billion China-Bahamas agri-fisheries project in Andros came before Cabinet it would be “rejected outright”. This was during a heated exchange in the House of Assembl...
 
 
A newspaper’s birthday
The Nassau Guardian turns 172 years old today. It is the oldest newspaper in the country. As far as we are aware, it is also the oldest business in The Bahamas. That this paper, formed out of a debate over slavery, is still here and vibrant nearly tw...

Decency and following the law
Hurricane Matthew caused damage to homes across New Providence. Those who live on the southern coast took the hardest hit, as storm surge accompanied the 140-mile-per-hour winds. Furniture and appliances were lost due to flood damage. In the days af...
 
 
New Providence and the Family Islands
The Family Islands are remarkably unfamiliar to many Nassauvians. We spend millions of dollars to court tourists to our islands. Incentives to encourage local travelers and developers exist but they are inadequate. Even a shopping trip to Miami coul...

The Bahamian economy has not grown in three years. We have had back-to-back direct hits from major hurricanes in successive years. When the next unemployment numbers are released it would not surprise us if the figure surpasses 16 percent. These are ...
