By Richard Harrison: I say special thanks to all the people who seek out and read my articles throughout the year.
My informed opinions are generated from my extensive formal education, work and business experiences…they are organically Belizean.
I do not write for money…my pen is not mercenary…but I do seek to convince my readers to my point of view…believing that more like-minds make for better unity and strength.
If and when I use data, it has to be accurate and credible…by professional business standards or by personal guesstimation using polls, logics and personal knowledge of the markets.
In any scenario that I criticize, I usually do so without fear or favor…and with a view to effecting some positive result in the interest of Belize and Belizeans…yes, I can be considered a nationalist constitutionalist patriot…favoring the mixed-economy philosophy as best for Belize and the world we live in.
My writings many times ilucidate strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats that Belize is experiencing….usually in the context of improving the competitiveness and productivity of product-market chains…especially those that I believe can positively impact the quality of life of Belizeans.
While I stand my ground writing only what I consider to be true and right…I welcome challenge and constructive criticism.
My writing style is unique…easy and fun for any literate person to read and understand.
This year I spent a lot of time researching and writing my views on the badventurous ICJ excursion that seeks to alter the definition of the borders of independent and sovereign Belize…a summary of 2018 can be the establishment of broad concensus on “No to ICJ”!
As we move forward into the promise of 2019, my works on tax reform will be developed upon…as this is where Belize mostly needs correction to move beyond colony status and into the world of increasing economic independence. Rapid and balanced economic transformation needs to be at the center of any strategy to preserve and enhance Belize’s independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity.
I thank you for taking the time to read my articles…and hoping that you gain insight and understanding from them.
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year! God bless!! ?????
