Top 10 Richest Caribbean Countries/island Of 2017

  • Published on Jul 4, 2017
  • Top 10 Richest Caribbean Countries/island Of 2017, this is the list of the richest countries based on their GDP.
    With summer approaching, many of us are dreaming of the soft sandy beaches and shining blue shallows promised by sunny Caribbean islands but for some lucky people, these exotic islands are home all year round. Made up of over 700 islands, reefs, islets and cays, the Caribbean promises a variety of treasures both on and off its shores.
    It seems that these islands are so relaxed their almost cut off from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the world. This impression of seclusion is largely a tourist-friendly illusion, however; the Carribean plays more of a role on the world stage than holiday-goers may expect. So what boosts these island’s economies? What makes them crucial on the world stage?
    Historically, most Caribbean islands belonged to a variety of European colonies. However, since achieving independence and/or autonomy, many Caribbean islands have managed to establish themselves competitively in the world economy. Undeniably, tourism is the industry that has flourished the most in the region but many of these islands are also agricultural strongholds, or have opened up to manufacturing and financial industries.
    The following list has been drawn up according to data collected by the World Bank estimating the GDP per capita of each island between 2009 and 2013. It ranks the top ten richest Caribbean islands from lowest to highest. Although some of the GDP figures may seem low, they present promise for a region that has undergone huge development over the past two decades after a history of struggle.

    Ranked at #69 globally, Trinidad and Tobago topped the list of Carribean countries.
    It ranked favourably in the HDI’s indices which include life expectancy (70.8 years), education (10.9 average years spent in school against 12.9 expected years) and standard of living ($28,622 gross national income per capita).
    The country was also ranked the happiest in the Caribbean region earlier in the year, thanks to its social economic standing. It also has one of the region’s powerful passports.

    Now couple it to the Cost of Living Index and you will have an accurate indicator of the true wealth of nations. Bahamas may be number one in gross national income per capita, but they are also number one in Cost of Living Index, so we are not the real number one in terms of disposable income after meeting the cost of living.
    But there is a more insidious side that is hidden in these numbers. They are calculated by taking the GDP or Gross Domestic Product (the entire economy) and dividing by the population. Here's the rub. There are 3 different ways of calculating GDP - by income, by expenditure and by production. So let's say Baha Mar add $2 billion through investment (it's not added all in one year, but for the sake of argument, suppose that it is). That money is direct foreign investment, but it is investment in tourism infrastructure owned by foreign corporations, and those foreign corporations repatriate their profits. So technically the $2 billion is added to the economy and it inflates the GDP and causes a big number when calculating gross income per capita. If the Value-Added approach is taken, the Value Added to the GDP is but a fraction of that $2 billion, and yet the $2 billion is used in 2 out of 3 calculations for the GDP.
    The same goes for second home sales in Lifeless (er Lyford) Cay, Ocean Club or Old Fort Bay. Some of the transactional elements get added to the GDP calculation, but it in no way benefits the actual person Over the Hill.
    So while the numbers may be used to suggest that the average person is richer than his neighbours in the Caribbean, it is not the case in reality.

    I don't know where you are getting your data from but there's no way Puerto Rico and the Bahamas is richer than Trinidad and Tobago.With there tourism Puerto Rico still cannot recover after a hurricane two years ago and the Bahamas is a u.s. territory that get federal funding from the U.S. Trinidad exports oil and gas to other parts of the world. 75% of the U.S comes from Trinidad and Tobago. Look at the end of year report for the world bank and you will see that Trinidad and Tobago economically surpass these other islands. Trinidad and Tobago yearly earnings is much more than Arkansas and Oklahoma combined. NOW PUT THAT IN YOUR PIPE AND SMOKE IT

    Keep in mind that Jamaica has over 3 million people most of the countries on the list don't have 200 thousand people , most of them not bigger than St Ann a parish in Jamaica so do the math people Jamaica is still the richest country in the Caribbean the culture alone is a cash cow just bad management and politics, Jamaica keep putting the region on the map in every way, love my Caribbean neighbors still

    • Murex X

      +Natalie Wiltshire ​ *Correction* ,"Really", If you are taking about real GDP then Barbados is definitely not richer than Jamaica, are you crazy? Jamaica is the most developed country in Caricom and possess the second largest economy in the English speaking Caribbean and will be the largest in the years to come. So please go and do your homework about Jamaica. Barbados real GDP is 4.797 Billion USD compare to Jamaica's GDP of 14.77 Billion USD, which is higher than the country this list claims to be the richest. Which anybody who knows anything about economics knows The Bahamas is not the richest and GDP per capita can not accurately measure the real wealth of the population of a country. Believe it or not currently the Dominican Republic is the richest country in the Caribbean and they have one of the lowest GPD per capita because of their large population. Lets take China as an example. China has a lower GDP per capita than all the countries on the list, yet still China is the second richest country on the planet with the second largest economy and the largest middle class in the world. So comparing Jamaica which has a population in the Millions to Barbados with a population little over 200,000 is not a accurate comparison. That is like comparing China who has a population of 1.3 Billion to Jamaica and saying Jamaica is richer because it has a higher GDP per capita due to its small size. It makes no logical sense.

      - *These links will give you an idea of where Jamaica is heading* -

      - *GOLD & COPPER* -

      - *OIL* -


      And as far has Reggae Music goes, please go and get the facts. I have been hearing Trinidadians claiming Jamaica's music and musical success for years now without bringing fort any valid evidence or prove to this claim,*Lol*. They have gone as far has to create a Wikipedia account and put Reggae Music as their own. "Not because you can now publish *Fake News* on the web mean it has suddenly become *Real*". They have even gained access to edit Wikipedia's Reggae Music background history and put calypso as Reggae's parent genre, when they know well, that is not true. The two don't even have the slighted similarities which is so funny. That's like Jamaica claiming Soca Music because they believe the riddims sounds similar or because Soca artiste are using Patwah in their lyrics so now all of a sudden, it their music. That's craziness. Everybody knows Reggae was created and was evolved by the Jamaicans. But whatever makes the trini's feel good is fine by me, because Reggae Music is not the only thing that they have falsely claimed as there own. A simple google search will revealed that Carnival as well, has fallen victim to the false claimers. But unfortunately for them, Jamaica's Reggae Music has just being inscribed into the UNESESCO 2018 List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, following Kingston being designated a Creative City of Music in 2015. So the whole world had already known but now it is solidified and set in stone who the true creators are.

      *So you need to get your facts straight before taking "hear say" and running with it. Enlighten yourself about the real history and not that delusional nonsense that has spread within that country and has infected a lot of minds in the population*

      *Reggae Music*

      Ammmmm it's GDP not culture being compared. Jamaica is poorer compared to Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago. And don't get started on culture, because the very thing Jamaica claims to have started in terms of music was brought to the island by another Caribbean person.

      What makes no sense is what your just saying first of all, Cuba isn't on your list Haiti isn't on your list either plus Porto Rico shouldn't even be considered since it's basically apart of the United States spending us currency. and I wasn't comparing size with countries thats not even on your list, More people which means there are More mouths to feed, which is why those countries with high population is not on your list no amount banna planting could take care of all Jamaica or Cuba or Haiti, plus ur data is old 2.7 million I've heard of that number since kindergarten and I'm in my you gonna compare Dominica who don't have 80 thousand people to another with 10 million, ask yourself can what these small island makes take care of the bigger ones absolutely not, ok since you might know how to do maths reduce Jamaica population to that of Dominica of 80 thousand people and then devide the GDP across the population and see your answer, plus if you think your list makes sense why the Cayman islands not at number 1 then. oh it's so small you couldn't see it

In the big picture we are tiny islands trying to compete on a global stage individually, AND WE WILL NOT SUCCEED ALONE!!! The faster we realise that, the faster we take steps to pool resources, somewhat like the EU, the brighter the future will be for our islands.

    I’m Bahamian, and to be honest, I don’t care who is the richest or not. I love the Caribbean, Caribbean food, culture and Caribbean people. If we don’t have each other’s back no one will. All the countries and islands together make one rich damn Caribbean.

    As an analyst in the finance industry, overseeing reporting on our operations in 17 countries in the Caribbean, let me tell you this list is beyond wrong. Your title should have read "Top 10 GDP in the "Caribbean". The No. 1 economy and richest country in the Caribbean is Trinidad & Tobago. Full stop. In fact the only larger economy-per-capita in the western hemisphere are the US and Canada. As for these islands with greater GDP (which is a false indicator of country wealth) the cost of living in these countries is sky high and negates the higher GDP. Industry, exports, investments, cost of living and individual spending power must all be taken into consideration.

    To my fellow descendants from Africa... you mean we are so lost that we would sit here and argue with other about which country's government steals the most money from us.. because when you stop and think about it.. who really makes the most money in any Caribbean island.. who cares who has the highest GDP if you still cant afford to feed your family and pay your rent... wake up people..

    Dominican Republic is bigger and the wealthiest with the limitation of their corrupt government. They have gold, oil, genuine stones ,huge agricultural , desert ,salt lakes , red rivers , the first colonial architectures in the American continent ,
    Very diverse culture, music,art , beautiful women, very warm people and the nature is a paradise all over , there is something amazing to see and learn every where you go quisqueya the way the taínos use to call it and Dominicans call it now means the mother of Earth and they still have a lot of taínos caves and art , is a paradise hopefully the Dominicans and the Haitians people can solve their differences and work together to fix those 2 very corrupt government
