New book on T&T's society

CREDI's chairman Dr. Terrence Farrell has written a book entitled “The Underachieving Society: Development Strategy and Policy in Trinidad and Tobago 1958-2008.”

Dr. Farrell had a very successful book launch and received many praises and endorsements on his book, which is selling well.

He was featured in several newspaper articles. Some highlights & excerpts from the articles and comments on his book are as follows:

"In explaining the choice of title, Farrell observed that Trinidad and Tobago is operating “way below its potential”. On the flipside, he reasoned, T&T can hardly be classified as an “overachieving” society hence his conclusion and diagnosis that the twin island republic was underachieving." - Trinidad Express Newspapers, May 7, 2013.

"Dr Farrell’s book joins a long and distinguished line of seminal works on the economy of Trinidad and Tobago... The appearance of Dr Farrell’s book is timely; it deserves to be read and re-read, widely studied and debated; the subject of seminars, panel discussion and public forums. He has done us a public service in writing it and bringing it through all the demanding stages of academic publication required by the UWI press." - Norman Girvan.
