Caribbean perspective on Chinese President Hu Jintao’s visit to the US: Better the devil we know...?

Friday, April 21, 2006

by Anthony L. Hall

Many Caribbean governments are not only taking stacks of cash from the Chinese government (for pet projects like building schools, sports stadiums and the catch-all “technical assistance”) but they are also allowing the Chinese to purchase controlling stakes in businesses that are critical to their national economies. And, in so doing, they are shifting political adhesion from one imperial power (the United States) to another (China). But, even though the Chinese are disposed to wield their economic superpower with (Confucian) politeness, their creeping hegemony throughout the Caribbean Basin will prove every bit as insalutary as the economic dominion the Americans have exercised over the region for decades.
