Description

This work argues that when leaders are aware of the interaction of leadership, social entrepreneurship, and economic management, they are more likely to succeed when guiding Caribbean countries from economic crisis to recovery. Multilateral financial institutions, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, are the two main protagonists in the structural adjustment program, designed specific policies to assist the countries and more importantly to promote a shift from the state-led development paradigm to one which was characterized by open and free competitive market economies with minimal state interference. The success of the structural adjustment program was dependent upon the overall strength of the political management process which was determined by three specific criteria: leadership, social entrepreneurship and economic management and where political management was strong countries were able to achieve structural adjustment objectives. This political management of the program is examined and discussed in relation to the experiences within the three English-speaking Caribbean countries on which the work focuses: Guyana, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago.
