THE EDITOR, Sir:
Jamaica is at a crossroads with the deal from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) because of a most important step the finance minister has failed to carry out.
The minister of finance has failed to table the White Paper on Pension and Tax Reform, and cut spending in some government ministries.
The country is in a wait-and-see situation.
It is not good for the country to see that the People's National Party administration has been pointing fingers from the first month in office until now.
This foolishness must stop. When a government gets into office, it must not spend most of its time pointing fingers as if it is in a blame match.
Dr Peter Phillips needs to get the people, in general, and specific stakeholders on track with this IMF deal, as time is running out for the possibility of inking an accord by year end. Only two and a half months are left.
