  8. Hi McHale, greetings from Dominica

  9. Saint Lucians historically are risk-averse. Our forefathers traded one set of slave masters the English, for another the French, instead of taking the risk to strike out on their own. We as Saint Lucians are not culturally great risk-takers.

    Today, reinforced by legal institutions that reinforce our risk aversion, as in our behaviour regarding family land, we have yet to fully learn the upsides and downsides related to the issues of risk-return or risk-reward. Unless this generation and future generations unlearn the past, our domestic investment climate will find greater attractiveness for foreigners and holders of huge amounts of foreign capital, than would local and ordinary Saint Lucians. How long will the necessary turn-around take to happen? We are forced to almost give up on making huge strides in the near term, and anticipate more positive outcomes for the medium to long term. A good indicator would be the conversion of idle capital that we know today as family land, or idle land, into more productive uses. Our productivity of land is extremely low.

    • Hi Tertillien,
      I'm curious about your comment on family land; what do you suggest the gov't do with family land occupied by family?
