This paper posits that it would be to the advantage of Caricom member states to harmonize the autonomous policies of their individual governments to allow orderly adjustments and to eliminate hostile reaction and sudden surprise, if individual government decided to conform to the idea of a single government and free movement of people in the Caribbean. The current economic status of each country is defined looking at current growth, investment and the balance of payments, employment and inflation. The paper speculates on an appropriate mix of taxation, government expenditure, financing of government and exchange rate policies that might suit each country. The suggestion is made that the fall-out might be for regional trade and capital movement and what adjustment might serve to accommodate this fall-out.
