I came across an article on Caribbean Net News about the top 10 richest countries in the Caribbean, and I went across to check out Canadian website Aneki.com, who compiled the rankings.
The rankings are based on each country's Gross Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per capita. GDP is the monetary value of all the finished goods and services produced within a country's borders in a specific time period, and is usually calculated on an annual basis.
It includes all of private and public consumption, government outlays, investments and exports less imports that occur within a defined territory.
The Top 10 are:
10. Grenada ($ 3,900 GDP per capita)
9. Cuba ($ 3,900 GDP per capita)
8. Jamaica ($ 4,600 GDP per capita)
Dunn's River Falls
7. Saint Lucia ($ 4,800 GDP per capita)
The magnificent Pitons
6. Dominican Republic ($ 8,000 GDP per capita)
5. Saint Kitts and Nevis ($ 8,200 GDP per capita)
The peninsula in south-east St. Kitts. Nevis is on the left.
4. Antigua and Barbuda ($ 10,900 GDP per capita)
3. Barbados ($ 18,200 GDP per capita)
Cattlewash, St. Joseph
2. Trinidad and Tobago ($ 19,700 GDP per capita)
