The outsourcing of Jamaica

Published:Monday | June 21, 2021 | 12:06 AM


Uber’s entry into Jamaica is likely to solve the transportation woes. No one has to take into account the investment of any particular group of Jamaican service providers. Thus, ye are easily dispensed with.

Other countries can build our highways, so it seems that too many wasted years in engineering education and profound inability plague Jamaican expertise.

Of course, we do not need to heed the advice of our own medical professionals in the scientific exploration of viable health alternatives in curing any condition. It seems that years of combined time of research and knowledge of the Jamaican medical fraternity is being sidelined. Anything or anyone ‘old’ is to be ‘dumped’.

This may very well be the outlook. In the flip of a switch, the best for the people, possibly new Houses of Parliament and heads of state. If everything is being done by other countries, we really then cannot be governed with sufficient skill by our own.

The new ‘Ubers’, ‘highways’ and ‘doctors’ will be voting in their own representatives.
