The U.S. Caribbean Basin Initiative and the Puerto Rican ExperienceSome Parallels and Lessons SAGE Publications, Inc.1985DOI: 10.1177/0094582X8501200405 Emilio Pantojas-Garcia by The Caribbean Basin Initiative (CBI), officially the Caribbean Basin Economic Recovery Act (Public Law 98-67, Title II), announced by President Ronald Reagan in February 1982, became law on August 5,1983, and has been in effect since January 1984. The CB I constitutes thus far the major attempt by the U.S. government to provide an economic component to its policy in the Caribbean Basin.
