Arthur’s way out


Share post:

Opposition Leader Owen Arthur laid his cards on the table yesterday for business leaders, saying he was ready to become Prime Minister again and take the tough actions needed to put Barbados back on a sustainable growth path.
Arthur was the featured speaker at the Barbados Chamber of Commerce & Industry’s (BCCI) September luncheon at Hilton Barbados where he addressed the topic The Prospects For Private Sector-Led Economic Growth In Barbados.
Characterizing the current administration as weak and one that boasted of meeting targets through “creative accounting”, the St Peter MP said the island was “caught up in a dangerous downward spiral”.
He warned too: “All indications are that the country’s economic problems are spreading and assuming dangerous new dimensions rather than showing themselves to be amenable to policy control.”
