Overview

First published in 1953, the basis of this study is shown by its subtitle: The National Income of British Honduras. It relates primarily to the financial year 1946. The author's preface illustrates the distinction of his survey: that as by-products he gives a shrewd critique of the former colony's statistics and some original and pertinent comments on colonial government and colonial policy in general. For this last he draws on his experience as an auditor in Northern Rhodesia and his personal knowledge of the Gold Coast. The book is therefore of interest to others besides specialist economists. It has valuable information for the colonial and commercial historian and the anthropologist studying the impact of colonial administration on native society.
