  ABSTRACT

 

This article explores some of the recent developments in neoliberal policy within the Caribbean and the impact of the West Indian Commission’s Report, A Time for Action, upon the institutional contours of regional economic integration. A product of decades of changing approaches to economic development within the Caribbean region, the latest rounds of neoliberal policy formulations promoted by CARICOM and the Association of Caribbean States (ACS) attempt to address the region’s economic, social, and institutional failures and to develop appropriate institutional frameworks for success. Whether or not these initiatives will meet with success depends largely upon the ability of lead institutions to incorporate pressures for market integration with clear institutional leadership.
