Lean-in for the Caribbean Union Trade Federation

There is something wrong in the Caribbean. It is the greatest address on the planet, but instead of the world “beating a path” to our doors, the people of the Caribbean have “beat down their doors” to get out. Our societal abandonment rates have technically been reported as high as 60 - 89 percent of our tertiary-educated populations.

These are desperate times, calling for desperate measures.

We hereby urge all Caribbean stakeholders to lean-in to a roadmap to introduce and implement the Caribbean Union Trade Federation (CU) - - among the 30 member-states of the region. This is presented as a technocratic federal government with powers to optimize the region's societal engines with these prime directives:

*  Optimize the economic engines in order to grow the regional economy; there is a potential to create 2.2 million new jobs and to grow the regional GDP to $800 Billion. The deficiency of jobs is one of the reasons that Caribbean people have emigrated.

*  Establish a security apparatus to protect the economic engines, mitigate threats and ensure public safety.

*  Improve Caribbean governance to support these above engines, including a separation-of-powers between member-state governments and CU federal agencies.

We must do something and this roadmap for the CU - modeled after the European Union (EU) - has addressed the issues, strategies, tactics and implementations to effect change in our homelands.

Many people love our region - residents, Diaspora and visitors alike - and yet we understand why and how people have left. It is time now to work to elevate our communities. The timing of this effort is urgent, as our youth, the next generation for the Caribbean, may not be inspired to participate in the future workings of our communities. We cannot have a future without our youth.

We must therefore do "this" (lean-in = pursue these goals with gusto) ... and do it now.
