Seeing The Way Forward
Barbados, We have a decision to make...
The downgrades by Standard and Poor’s should have informed all doubting Barbadian residents that we are in an economic death spiral. Only those in deep slumber would think that all was well.
If you love Barbados, join us!
Accomplished men and women of demonstrated integrity and leadership, who love Barbados, treasure their reputations, and are willing to present themselves as candidates in the next general election in order to give Barbadians a competent alternative. Prospective candidates must not view politics as a career, but as a brief time of exemplary national service.
Providing a competent alternative for Barbados
If you love Barbados, acknowledge the guidance of God, and have demonstrated competence in any area, then we want you and Barbados needs you. We would like you to consider being a Solutions Barbados candidate in the upcoming general election, to finally give voters a competent alternative to those who have brought us to the brink of economic ruin.
The door is now open to you – send us a message.

We started Solutions Barbados and published this site on 1 July 2015. A summary of our main solutions is described on our Policy Solutions page. They are designed to address the main problems hindering Barbados’, and therefore your development. You are encouraged to comment, and we will happily engage you in discussions of how they may be improved. The improved solutions will become our promises to you. Our weekly column in Barbados Today, solutions to topical issues and notices about public events are provided on our Blogs and Notices page.
One political leader recently revealed that only those in the political trenches had the right to have their advice on national issues considered. Since we did not plan to stop offering unsolicited advice, and had no desire to engage in futile exercises, then we had no choice but to reluctantly enter the political trench. At that time, we promised that if the Government or Opposition parties considered our solutions, then we would leave the trench as quickly as we entered it. Since they chose not to even discuss our solutions, we plan to implement them ourselves to the benefit of Barbados.
It has been said that good managers try to do their best with the resources available to them, while leaders change the environment to allow for better management. We intend to lead.
We invite you to: share this web-site by including a link on your Facebook or other social media page, inform your friends, family and colleagues about Solutions Barbados, and follow us on this web-site in order to be notified of any updates.
If you need any additional information about Solutions Barbados, then please review, or post your question on our Frequently Asked Question’s page. A description of our Candidates is provided on our Candidates page.

Our Policy Solutions
They have now become our promises to the people of Barbados. Some of those are:
The general inefficiency and indecision within the public service is the main problem hindering Barbados’ development. This can be solved with a professional public service that is not influenced by any political party.
Improving the Regulatory System
To address the quality of government’s regulatory system, the qualifications and experience of regulatory posts will be high. Professional posts will require chartered or equivalent professional qualifications, preferably at the level of Fellow.
Improving the Criminal Justice System
The main reason for Barbados’ expensive justice system is to address the actions of offenders. It is time that the offenders pay for their justice service.
Improving Government Procurement
Internationally, government procurement of goods and services represents a significant share of national corrupt practises (between 10% and 30%). Once a country has been negatively branded as corrupt, then it can take at least one generation to change that perception.
When secondary school students graduate, they should have at least one marketable skill and feel useful. They should know how to survive on their own; otherwise, we have done them a disservice.
To address the high cost of public transportation, the public transportation system will be privatised and fairly and well regulated.
