GUYANA: Georgetown and Silica City – Commentary

By January 29, 2023

Our own Georgetown was both a planned city and grew haphazardly. It was planned in the sense that in 1781 the British selected the site for a town, building a fort somewhere near the museum – although no one is sure exactly where it was − and deciding that the seat of government would be on the strip of land which ran south from the Brandwagt or Dutch signal station, around where Stabroek Market now stands.        Continue reading

GUYANA: POVERTY AND POVERTY REDUCTION IN GUYANA — by Ralph Ramkarran

Posted by Ralph Ramkarran January 28, 2023- Conversatin Tree Blog

There is no dispute that much poverty still exists in Guyana. Its existence and alleged absence of solutions to relieve it were among the highlights of the Budget Debate last week, uninspiring as many of the speeches were.

Those living on less than US$1.90 per day are considered as living below the poverty line. Numerous measures have been discussed and debated over decades to lift people above the poverty line, and prior to the covid-19 pandemic, great successes have been achieved in reducing poverty.          Continue reading
