Consumer Survey Barbados

Dear BFP and Family,

Back in 2009, you graciously took the time to complete my survey (Resident Perceptions of Tourism Impacts in Barbados).  Now, I am asking for your help once again. I have setup a new survey to look at the sentiments of consumers in Barbados (in terms of the economy, income, consumption, etcetera). It is similar to the US Consumer Confidence Index, The Survey of Consumers (by Univ of Michigan), as well as others around the World.

I’m not 100% sure if there is one like specifically for Barbados, and even if there was, it doesn’t hurt to have more data to study, analyze and cross-reference. Accordingly, I have created such a survey, 30 questions in total, which should take anywhere between 10 to 20 minutes to complete. When the survey period expires, I will post a summary of the results (as I did with my 2009 survey) and the methodology for all to see (I will send a notification to the blogs when ready).

I believe that the information coming out of studies like this may be useful for decision makers in the public and private sectors because it offers up a glimpse of what/how Barbadians feel when it comes to certain topics that are important to our economy at the micro and macro level.

Please therefore take the time to fill it out (I’ve set the expiry date for June 18, with a max. of 1500 responses), the link is right here:


Thank you for your time.

MP Lashley – Sex and homosexuality on TV: bad. Fellow government Minister’s internet porn business: No Problem!

SexSearch.com – Health Minister Inniss made money from this business

“We believe that Minister Inniss’ business history makes him unacceptable to represent and lead the people of Barbados.

Minister of Family Stephen Lashley says that too much sexuality and promotion of homosexuality is reaching our young people through home television. Well, before Minister Lashley starts cleaning up the world he might want to take a good look closer to home.

Fellow DLP Member of Parliament and Minister of Health Donville Inniss made a ton of money in the online sex industry, but Minister Lashley doesn’t seem to be concerned about his friend’s vile business history and slimy associates. Whatever we see on television is NOTHING compared with the degradation of women and loss of human dignity that characterizes the shameful business that Minister Inniss chose for himself before being embraced by the DLP as an “ideal candidate”.

We believe that Minister Inniss’ business history makes him unacceptable to represent and lead the people of Barbados.
