In Bahamas, Arthur warns of threats to nation building

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados – FORMER Barbados Prime Minister Owen Arthur is warning of social disintegration within the Caribbean if new lifestyles and consumption patterns promoted through globalisation, are allowed to go unchecked.
Arthur gave the warning in an address at the 40th anniversary celebration of the Independence of The Bahamas, saying that it could also affect nation building in the region.
Speaking on the topic, “The Philosophy of Nation Building,” Arthur who is currently an Opposition MP, said that globalisation had exposed the typical Caribbean nation not just to new technological forces, but also to new cultural influences which are already beginning to shape the nature of the society in which we live.
