“‘There and Back Again’ by Nelson and Clarke Explores the IMF Jamaica relationship, from 2010 traversing the ebb and flow within Jamaica’s socio-political economy, as well as the discourse, practice and governance of both. Bridging the political divide, Vision 2030, engenders dimensions of ownership, multipartite partnership, and modalities of social governance within the IMF programme. Completing the IMF lending relationship, Covid-19- as a fly in the proverbial ointment, leaves the jury out, on Jamaica going ‘Back again’” – Lloyd George Waller, Ph.D., Waikato, New Zealand. This book explores the IMF: Jamaica, relationship since 2010, examining Jamaica’s high debt and inability to access financial support amidst international capital market restrictions, contextualizing harsh socio-economic realities. With Jamaica’s second return to the IMF, actor networks of governance amidst political and socio-economic efforts to re-engender a relationship are foregrounded, with a “new’ IMF. Credibility is demonstrated and restored, furthering the success of the 2013 Extended Fund Facility and exit to a Precautionary Stand-By Arrangement in 2016. Clarke and Nelson reveal lessons learned, discussing Jamaica’s economic prognosis and the IMF relationship under the shadow of the COVID pandemic.
