  1. Instead why don’t we have a class for those in leadership of the government. This class is not needed for most business people in Saint Vincent. Instead the government should be taught basic supply-side Economics so that we can export. Instead of having sky-high taxes, Customs duties and all other fees we should drastically lower all these costs, in money and time, so that the cost of doing business in SVG would not be so high. We have to throw away our terrible system of only rewarding those with lots of money and the right friends with concessions and make a tax and duty system that rewards those that have great ideas instead.
    Why does it take only a few minutes to go through Customs in other countries and days to go through customs in SVG. Why does the procedure cost almost nothing in other countries but is very expensive in time and money in Saint Vincent?
    The country needs to wake-up and see why we are so far behind and going nowhere economically. Businesses fail in SVG because the lion’s share of all the “profits” goes to the government, not the business. Maybe Camillo Gonsalves should look at this. If he makes the needed changes he would even get my respect!
