THE?GOVERNOR OF THE CENTRAL BANK of Barbados has made it clear that he is not a fan of the wholesale free movement of people in CARICOM.
Dr DeLisle Worrell, one of the region’s leading economists, said the idea of people moving as they pleased across the Caribbean could not work in the current circumstances.
Responding to a question about the progress so far and the benefits of a CARICOM Single Market & Economy (CSME), Worrell told members of Barbados Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (BARAIFA) that he had some problems with the current arrangements.
“If you have a small economy which is prosperous, like Barbados, surrounded by a number of large economies that are not nearly as prosperous and some not prosperous at all – you cannot have freedom of movement. It doesn’t make any sense”.
