Third highest GDP/GNP which ever term you fancy.When allyuh go learn boy??
it will take years of hard work and dedication for us as a ppl to compete efficiently on the world stage, whether it's sport, politic, economics, business, infrastructure, or technology, we are way behind when we should be keeping strides with the pack, that's bc the ppl who have the say in T&T are lazy greedy complaisant deluded thieves!
they are void of ideas and know how, they take every thing for granted and have no kind of vision for the future, it's too bad a country like haiti, cuba or even dominican rep eh have the kinda wealth we have, it almost hurts my heart to see good money go to waste on such a stagnant care free ppl.
..............ah wonder how come non of these mutts never figure out that this is the reason for underachieving all these decades?
it's ah crying shame i say.
Yet T&T has the g an 3rd highest standard of livind per-capita income in the Western Hemisphere...3rd behind the USA and Canada.
Just some food for thought, breda.
and yeh, most that income is only distributed to a small section of the population, in other words the rich getting richer while trickle down economics is totally ignored and out of the question.
in addition to that, we also have a very high poverty rate for our GDP per capita. could you imagine one million and a little less than a half population with extremely high revenues yet still livin under 3rd world status with very little infrastructural upgrades??
listen hero, there's no one on this earth who could sell me trinidad as a progressive nation, not even jesus christ who happens to be one of my favorite ppl to have walked the earth.
