In an e-mail to Business Day, Barbados-based Bitt chief economist, Marla Dukharan, argued otherwise. "TT was/is not in a recession. TT is in a stagnation." This, she added, was worse than a recession. TT has averaged zero growth for ten years. "One quarter or one year of growth does not signal a reversal of a trend that has lasted ten years."

According to the World Bsnk, T&T has the largest fiscal deficit in Central America and the Caribbean. Infact they predict that the twin island republic's economy will shrink by -0.5% this year!

Venezuela, T&T Nicaragua and Argentuns are the only 4 countries that the World Bank estimates this year will have weaker economies by the end of 2019.

 Two oil rich countries. That is interesting.
