Small island economies. Mauritius: political, economic and social development in a small island.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Examines how Mauritius has come to be regarded as a success and how such a small island might be characterized economically, socially, and politically. Notes that the concept of ethnicity is at least as powerful as the concept of class in the relationship between economic ownership and political control. Notes continuing patterns: the influence of the electoral process and that of coalition government; the helplessness of politicians in face of adverse external economic factors; the prosperity of the early 1970s reducing the political tension, then with recession, politics heating up again in 1972. Also notes the international influence of Mauritius and provides some reasons for it.-P.Creese(CDS)
