AbstractTo pay back the 4.5 billion Jamaica owes to international lenders like the World Bank, and the International Money Fund (IMF), the World Bank is demanding that Jamaica undertake economic reforms as a condition of the loan, including the opening of its markets to foreign vegetables and fruits. This deregulation has hurt Jamaica's farmers, who find themselves increasingly impoverished.
