my different view point from Belize-N-US is about "protectionism". I believe it is necessary for the Belize government to restrict work permits just as they are doing to protect jobs for Belizeans and those who are not Belizean but have qualified to work in Belize.
Protectionism helps only those in the highest places of power. Protectionism helps noone it is intended to help. Government intervention in any free market activity always has unintended consequences.
I recommend picking up a copy of "The Revolution: A Manifesto", by Ron Paul. It's a great read.
