Specially highlighted in the economic development of Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago in the '70s.



El Salvador

In 1980 El Salvador continued to suffer from a political conflict of complex origin and characteristics, which had a decisive impact on trends in the economy. The conflict was so intense that the abnormal situation to which it gave rise hampers —and even relegates to a position of secondary importance— conventional analysis of the significance of principal trends. This is not only due to the lack of reliable data and information but also to the fact that there is reason to question whether economic events have their customary importance at a time when physical survival was a matter of real concern for many Salvadorians and when daily life was conducted against a background of serious tensions.
