||Worrell, DeLisle (1992)
The Barbados economy has moved in the post-war period from low to middle income per head, with improvements in the income distribution and rising living standards for all citizens. A modern infrastructure has been put in place and the coverage of socials services substantially widened. Barbadians have achieved a quality of life that might be the envy of industrial countries (see Human Development Report, 1990). The material basis for this economic expansion was provided by the growth of exports throughout the period.
