By NEIL HARTNELL

Tribune Business Editor

With major Freeport businesses and wholesalers having suffered year-over-year top-line sales reductions of between 30-60 per cent for January, a leading attorney told Tribune Business that central government pressure meant that "the rule of law and governance under the Hawksbill Creek Agreement has nearly complete collapsed".

Fred Smith QC, the Callenders & Co attorney and partner, warned that various government initiatives, such as Customs' demand for a National Insurance Board (NIB) Letter of Good Standing before bonded letters were renewed, were in danger of "throwing the baby out with the bath water" and "could easily k ...

In 1848 the French Economist Frederic Bastiat published an essay titled

"What Is Seen and What Is Not Seen" and it's very relevant to the sale of BTC by the Government of The Bahamas today.
