Traveling by sailboat, we see the harsh reality of economic recession. It seems worse in the Bahamas than the U.S. They are dependent on our tourism.
People are anchoring out to save money, hotels with entire sections closed, and nearly empty marinas. People are trying so hard to attract customers; discounts, free desserts and former private clubs open to the public. But they are having so little success. Where are the boats?
As a former business owner, it’s painful for me to see, but the people hurt worst are those who have lost jobs.
