Listed author(s):
  • Peter W Jones

    (Economic Development Institute)

“Jamaicans are patient, trustful and law abiding and if properly treated no one has anything to fear. The conditions existing today have not sprung up overnight but they have been left to grow worst till the situation is now acute…. What Jamaica needs now is practical and sympathetic men interested in the country and not charlatans and self- seekers making long speeches about nothing… “Many of us dare to believe that this country, so blended in origins so fashioned in time, so wrought on by our own history may go out in to the world to make a contribution larger than our size alone would lead one to expect. I believe that as an independent nation we can so manage ourselves as to demonstrate one day how by making our great motto “ Out Of Many One People” Come to speak the truth about ourselves, we can become a worthwhile and shining example of the sort of world some men sometimes dream to live in”
