One of this country’s top experts in finance and economics says the blow the covid-19 pandemic has delivered to the Barbados economy is far bigger than the latest Central Bank figures indicate and believes a massive intervention is required.

That’s the view of financial economist Professor Justin Robinson, the UWI’s Pro-Vice Chancellor for Undergraduate Affairs, and former Cave Hill head of economics and CEO of the School of Business.

Professor Robinson tells Starcom Network News that the Central Bank’s projections for economic growth this year and 2022 don’t tell the full story of the deep economic crisis Barbados finds itself in.

 

 

Professor Robinson believes that especially the private sector led part of the economy is in a severe state.
