  • Description

    REVOLUTION AND POLITICAL UNREST IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC HAVE VIRTUALLY WIPED OUT THE FORMERLY PROSPEROUS TOURIST TRADE IN THAT COUNTRY, AND HAVE HAD GRAVE REPERCUSSIONS THROUGHOUT THE REST OF THE ECONOMY.

    THE PLUSH RESORT HOTELS ARE PRACTICALLY EMPTY AND THE SUNNY BEACHES DESERTED. THE CABANAS STAND UNUSED. NOBODY DANCES IN THE BALLROOM OF THE BOCA CHICA RESORT HOTEL. THE BIG FREE PORT SHOP THAT FORMERLY DID A THRIVING TRADE IN DUTY-FREE GOODS IN GLAD TO GET ONE OR TWO CUSTOMERS A DAY NOW.

    CONDITIONS ARE NEARLY AS SERIOUS IN OTHER SECTORS OF THE ECONOMY. THERE IS WIDESPREAD AND SEVERE UNEMPLOYMENT. MANUFACTURED GOODS ARE AVAILABLE ONLY AT HIGH PRICES.
