The Caribbean basin region has experienced many economic changes in the new global environment. The islands' business enterprises must function effectively if they are to improve the commercial position of the region's individual economies. This book examines the role producer services, specifically the major accounting firms, play in the sustainability and expansion of the Caribbean basin economies.
The first part establishes the frame of reference for the book. A specific and detailed review of accounting services provided throughout the region follows. The third chapter describes the legal and institutional parameters facing accounting practice in the basin. The last section summarizes the general roles of services as they grow and change as well as the economic impact of accounting services.
