As the government continues to grapple with falling revenue, taxation continues to be its main source of income, but with the economy in its eighth consecutive quarter of negative or stagnated growth, can Trinidad and Tobago bear the burden of any more taxes?

Senior lecturer in Economics at the St Augustine campus of the University of the West Indies (The UWI), Dr Marlene Attzs, suggests that it might take as many as ten years for the Institute for Gender and Development Studies and like-minded organisations to develop a Gender Justice Scorecard for Trinidad and Tobago, one of the objectives of the inst(...)

After more than 50 years of Independence and tremendous haggling among the authorities, Trinidad and Tobago is still without a National Building Code (NBC). This becomes especially important in the face of unauthorized and indiscriminate construction on river banks, steep hillsides and in flood prone areas.

Since the announcement last week of the date for the upcoming Budget Presentation, a great deal of attention has been centred largely on budget-related fiscal, monetary and economic issues.
