Causes and Effects of Export Instability in the Caribbean
Export earnings instability is important to the Caribbean because of the share of primary products in exports. Although there have an abundance of literature on export earning instability in developing countries, none have dealt in detail with instability in the Caribbean. My thesis aims to provide information on the sources of instability, identifying the commodities that contribute most significantly to the instability and ascertain the impact on the macro economy.
