    An informative and well-written piece. Words are generally bandied about missing the associated nuances. I am a “word geek” so I enjoyed the article. Thanks.

    A refreshing and very informative piece of information/advice to those who left their native lands thinking that they had then aspired, or have been elevated to a new racial group. Those people, in my mind, are the ones who suffer from low self esteem and would do anything to bolster the way they think that they should be regarded in their new surroundings. Some of us never learn.

    The article is informative and resourceful.However the receptivity of residents of the home state leaves much to be desired.
    Is it only a case of ignorance or resentment that ideas proposed are so readily rejected?
    Simple issues of addressing the damaging amount of irion in the drinking and household use of water is ignored. Provision of assistance to the elderly in a friendly manner are rejected. How do we integrate to a culture which we are apart of?

      The Diaspora should end the remittances if Guyanese are acting intolerant while the foreigners rob them blind.

        We gat over 15 billion barrel of oil and our GDP per capita is increasing by 50% every year. We don’t need handouts anymore from America. You can stay there in your tent cities and Skid Rows.

      Dear Horace,
      We Guyanese have a sovereign nation and we don’t like foreigners telling us what to do. We have a right to ban foreigners under the Constitution like we did to those two British men who dissed our Ministers at an illegal construction site.
      Stay where yuh deh. We don’t need any more foreigners.

    Excuse me?!
    Who allowed you into this discussion?

    If Guyana is so great as you say then why are females in labor dying while giving birth? Is this the medieval age?

    Guyana is corrupt, mismanaged and will become the Equatorial Guinea of the Americas. I could care less.

    Every one of you left Guyana while I stayed in the country as a patriot.

    And to use Guyanese parlance: Ayuh wanna come back to Guyana.

    Is it because we have oil, the fastest growing economy in the world, and oil reserves that quadruple in size every year?

    My suggestion to each and every one of you living abroad: STAY THERE.

    This includes you Keith Rowley. We are fed up of seeing your citizens hogging away our commercial activities.

    We don’t want to become second class aliens in our own country.

    It’s time that we as Guyanese kick out the foreigners and manage our own resources without the patronage of foreigners.

      “My suggestion to each and every one of you living abroad: STAY THERE.”

      How dare you say that Miss, Paloma?

      This is a silly and ridiculous statement. You can wish for expatriates to remain overseas but you have no say or authority in what a citizen chooses to do.

      Do you know the reasons your fellow citizens left the country? Some had no choice. Guyana went through a rough period in the post-independence years. Only an uneducated or willfully-ignorant person wouldn’t know this.

      If you were born (and raised) in Guyana, you are a Guyanese for life. As such, you have every right to return to the land of your birth or to visit or to retire as you so choose. That’s a god-given right!

        I’m an American expatriate who is in the oil and gas industry. Guyana doesn’t have the human resources to manage the offshore operations.

        I don’t comprehend why there is hostility towards oil expats when Guyana needs us more than we need them. We can always find another oil hotspot, like Namibia or Botswana for example. ReconAfrica is set to discover a massive oil find soon in Botswana.

      • Age  On 12/27/2022 at 5:55 pm

        That oil company you mentioned is Canadian-based. I wonder if you can share any information on the oil reserve potential in their licensed blocks?

        If they do find oil like offshore Namibia, the stock price will go up.

        [And I’m not stressing on what that inflammatory troll above just said about the diaspora.

        A quick Google search showed me that the inflammatory poster went to study at Harvard University, presumably at the expense of the locals in the States and/or paid by the American taxpayers.]

      • Jim  On 12/31/2022 at 9:34 pm

        Happy New Year.

        There is great potential in offshore Namibia. One discovery alone amounted to at least 2.5 billion barrels of oil resource potential. Namibia may be Guyana’s competitor.

        You should also note that Namibia and Botswana are considered more democratic and easier to do business than many emerging markets.

        And this comment isn’t intended to provide investment advice. Do your due diligence.

      “It’s time that we as Guyanese kick out the foreigners”

      Like you want Guyana get sanctioned or what?

      And give back Harvard University your degree if you deem yourself a patriot. You just like Freddie Kissoon who got a scholarship from Canada and now wants to smear Guyanese-Canadian Professors in his tabloid.

  • Age  On 12/21/2022 at 2:20 pm

    What does the Prime Minister of Trinidad have to do with anything? He is a respectable man. What is wrong with some people in Guyana really.

    • Brother Man  On 12/21/2022 at 4:36 pm

      Some of the most foolish people are the ones flashing titles in front or behind their names.

      Quite frankly, you will never impress me with credentials. The proof is in the pudding!

      Lightweights, quacks and charlatans are everywhere.

      • Age  On 12/21/2022 at 7:44 pm

        But it doesn’t quack like a duck though. More like spew venom and poison like a snake.

        What happens when oil prices collapse or oil reserves are depleted? Will those that they dissed help them again?

      • Brother Man  On 12/28/2022 at 7:49 am

        What Guyanese-Canadian professors? The quacks?

        There are more holes in that statement than Swiss cheese.

  • Age  On 01/01/2023 at 4:25 pm

    Happy new year to you Jim. That’s a very huge find. I just searched Bloomberg and they stated that two discoveries from Shell and Total combined are at least seven billion barrels.

    Seems like an oil glut is coming soon. The OPEC can cut so much before Canada and America [and her vassal states] takes over market share.

    The American man isn’t stupid at all, as much as what bloggers quote as “illiterate primary school dropouts arguing with returning Guyanese working in oil and gas about how they, Exxon, and the USA don’t know about Guyana”.

    Exxon seems to be very high for a stock price, so I’m looking for value in other frontier basis to get the startup prices.
