 We live in an electronic era where breaking news is instant and as a result there are many people in marketing who would have you believe magazines and newspapers are on their deathbed. In addition to its speed they point out the amazing reach of the Internet, its low cost, its and the increasing numbers that are attracted to this medium through telephones as much as computers, large public screens and strategically placed monitors in offices and shops. And some tell us in 20 years time...

The lure to return to the homeland may not be as attractive as it has been for returning nationals, but setting aside the island’s current economic challenges, there has never been a better time to buy. Many Barbadians living overseas have a long-term plan to retire to their homeland or to own a piece of the Rock and spend more holidays in the sun before making the final move. It is an understandable dream given the beautiful attributes Barbados has to offer and nobody knows them better than a...

I never knew the word “austerity” existed until a few years ago when the effects of global meltdown started to hit hard in several European countries and there were protest marches against Government policies and some placards read “An end to Austerity measures.” After a quick flick through the pages of my Oxford dictionary I was suitably enlightened as to the meaning of this Draconian word, which has now become a buzzword in the modern era.    There are several meanings of austerity, but the...

It’s the Crop Over season once again and with it comes a great buzz of excitement covering many social, musical, cultural and party activities. Everything builds up to the big Kadooment Day Parade, which has become a colourful spectacle that attracts many visitors and returning nationals in August.

Whatever happens on the international front eventually reaches the Caribbean and while the effects of global recession took their time to penetrate the region, the damage since 2008 has been huge. Small island economies have struggled to come to terms with austerity methods and trying to tax your way out of the problem coupled with high borrowing has certainly not worked in the Barbados economy. It remains to be seen if the government can turn it around amidst widespread criticism of their...

Welcome to another edition of Barbados Property News. In the old days things went quiet in the property market during the ‘summer’ months, but the world has changed and there is just as much activity now as over the Christmas period. Certainly with Crop Over and CPL (Caribbean Premier League) cricket on the horizon there will be plenty of people visiting the island and that’s great news for hotels, villa owners, retail outlets and real estate agents. We’ve also included our annual Wedding...

It may not be obvious to the passive observer, but a lot of exciting things are happening at Apes Hill these days. Perhaps the most exciting news is that construction of the new Apes Hill Clubhouse will commence later this year after the Apes Hill Club appointed renowned local Architect Larry Warren to the job. We have since learned that the preliminary design is progressing well and that the completed clubhouse will accommodate the Golf Operation, Fitness Centre, Tennis Centre and Resort...

‘Tis the season to be jolly-or is it? This has been another tough year for the Barbados economy and real estate has been affected just like everything else. We now hear more about Standard and Poor’s than we do about our cricketers Chris Gayle and Shivnarine Chanderpaul, which confirms our cricket is just as bad as the economy. There are interesting synergies in both. When players lose form and performances are poor the West Indies Cricket Board makes changes. Players are dropped and coaches...
