These musings led me to the topic “Caribbean economic development in the post Washington consensus period”. While much of the presentation will relate to the English-speaking Caribbean, and more particularly the member states of the Caribbean community, we are acutely aware that both Lewis and Beckford had a much broader concept of the Caribbean and their influence has been much wider. We have structured the presentation in five parts as follows: I. A brief background II. Brief notes on Lewis and Beckford III. A summary view of the Washington consensus IV. Recent Caribbean economic performance; and V. Some pointers to the future of the Caribbean through Lewis/Beckford lenses
