UK: Groundbreaking work on slave economy, by Dr. Eric Williams, finally back on UK shelves

Seminal work by scholar and future politician Eric Williams, rejected 80 years ago, to be republished in Britain

Dr Eric Williams in 1961, when he was president of Trinidad and Tobago, speaking at Central Hall in London's Westminster.

Sun 23 Jan 2022 09.30 GMT – THE GUARDIAN

But when Eric Williams – who would later become the first prime minister of Trinidad and Tobago – sought to publish his “mind-blowing” thesis on capitalism and slavery in Britain, he was shunned by publishers and accused of undermining the humanitarian motivation for Britain’s Slavery Abolition Act. It was not until 1964 that the work found a publisher in the UK, but it has been out of print here for decades.

USA: A Tribute in memory of Colin Moore – By Lear Matthews

Colin Moore

A Tribute in memory of Colin Moore  – By Lear Matthews

As we mourn the loss of Colin Moore, bringing a message of condolence and comfort to his family, I would like to share a few thoughts about my friend, colleague and mentor. He has been a champion for human rights, a voice of the downtrodden and devoted son of the soil.

What he has done as a political activist, legal scholar, historian, community organizer, father, husband and citizen of the world has left an indelible mark which will continue to influence many lives. His political advocacy spanned the globe, but particularly Guyana, Jamaica and the US. He participated in early efforts to establish a National Arts Council Center in Guyana to promote cultural and ethnic unity, and national solidarity.        Continue reading

GUYANA: Government to make first drawdown from oil fund for 2022 budget

  • BUDGET IN PARLIAMENT ON WEDNESDAY JANUARY 26, 2022

OilNOW- 22 January 2022

V.P Bharrat Jagdeo

Guyana’s Vice President Dr. Bharrat Jagdeo said last Friday that the government intends to use some of the proceeds from its US$607 million Natural Resource Fund to finance the government’s budget for the fiscal year 2022.

Guyana has been borrowing to finance its budget for years but plans to lower its fiscal deficit this year.

“The fiscal deficit this year, in this budget, would be lower than the fiscal deficit in last year because from a financing perspective, that means we’d have to borrow less because some of the oil and gas revenue will go to replace the high level of borrowing that we have had.”          Continue reading

The government of Guyana has opted to create a sovereign wealth fund with the revenue earned from the offshore extraction of oil. This has not proven to be a straightforward exercise. Join our panel as they offer perspectives on the economics, the ethics and the legislation involved. The panel will consist of Professor Tarron Khemraj (economist), Christopher Ram (of Article 13) and Mike McCormack (of Policy Forum Guyana). Professor Alissa Trotz will moderate.

Moray House Trust has spent a decade working to promote Guyanese culture and public discourse. We believe that a culture thrives and develops where ideas circulate and are robustly debated and interrogated.

GUYANA: Balram Singh Rai (1921-2022): The source of his politics – By Clem Seecharan

This is abridged from my introductory essay to a biography of Rai by Baytoram Ramharack, Against the Grain: Balram Singh Rai and the Politics of British Guiana (Trinidad: Chakra, 2005).

Editor’s Note: In the last two weeks, we have lost several Guyanese who have made significant contributions to political, economic and cultural life. This week’s column pays homage to one of them, and is dedicated also to the memory of Ron Bobb-Semple and Yesu Persaud.

Balram Singh Rai

Balram Singh Rai (1921-2022), a minister in Cheddi Jagan’s government from 1959 until he was expelled from the PPP in June 1962, died in Oxford, England earlier this month. He migrated to England in 1970, and had taken no perceptible part in Guyanese politics since his Justice Party was comprehensively defeated in the first general elections under PR, in December 1964. It is arguable that he was demoralised by the scale of his defeat, and that he became something of a recluse thereafter. He was a tremendous loss to  Guyana’s political culture. I will attempt a survey of what inspired his brief political career, his philosophical promptings.          Continue reading

POLITICS: Female Leadership Is Good for The World. Just Look at Barbados – Mandeep Rai | The Guardian UK

By Mandeep Rai | The Guardian UK

PM Mia Mottley

Mia Mottley is just one of a raft of strong women across the Caribbean and South America tackling society’s most pressing issues. The world could learn a lot from them

I am writing from South America and the Caribbean, having interviewed many female leaders, most recently from Suriname, Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago and Barbados. 

The level of respect for female political and business leaders here is partly because they have had to dig deeper to prove themselves, which I believe is one key to their success – particularly during turbulent times.        Continue reading

BOOK: From Rags to Riches: Is Guyana Ready for the Oil Bonanza? – by Terence M Yhip 

Published in Paperback – Jan. 5 2021 – by Terence M Yhip 

Guyana’s initial discovery of approximately 9 billion barrels of recoverable oil offshore now puts the country squarely on the precipice of economic prosperity for decades to come. But will that happen? Guyanese are asking themselves if their country is ready to manage the oil money, wisely and productively.
.
They look at many hydrocarbon-rich rich countries in the region and elsewhere and they don’t like what they see. Far from befitting from the oil wealth, the countries are mired in political chaos, corruption and economic stagnation. Many countries, such as Trinidad and Tobago (sister CARICOM state), face depletion of oil and gas reserves by the end of this decade or so, but their economies are more dependent than ever on the energy sector, hammered by low energy prices..

GUYANA: Ron Bobb-Semple has taken his final bow — by Francis Quamina Farrier

Ron Bobb-Semple as Marcus Garvey

— by Francis Quamina Farrier 

Guyanese veteran Communicator and actor of stage and screen, Ron Bobb-Semple, recently took his final bow on the stage of life, having lived the prescribed three scores and ten. He is yet another long-standing friend and colleague of mine who has died as a result of COVID-19 complications.
.
In the Pepperpot Magazine of September 27, 2020, I wrote of losing other long-standing friends and colleagues, including veteran actor of stage, television and screen, Gordon Case, who was based in London, England. Billy Braithwaite and Jimmy Bacchus, two businessmen who were based in New York city and who had contracted the coronavirus in the early stages of its arrival, were featured in the first article of mine which focused on the COVID-19 pandemic. They both were friends of mine for over 55 years.
