          ABSTRACT

 

This article seeks to provide an overview of the problem of poverty in the Commonwealth Caribbean relative to its causes and its socio-economic impact.  It uses the cases of Jamaica and Guyana over the last thirty years.  From a people-centered perspective, an attempt is made to identify some practical solutions to the problem of poverty, particularly for policymakers and development planners, which can be applied over the short to medium-term both at the international and national levels.
