Within recent times three forces have caused me once again to write to the editor:
1. The Trinidad and Tobago 2018 national budget
2. A quote from Eric Butterworth, senior minister of The Unity Centre, of New York City, from 1961 to 2003, who is known for having reminded us that prosperity is about a way of living and thinking, and not just about money or things; that poverty is about a way of living and thinking, and not just about a lack of money or things.
3. Cries of protests, pessimism and misinformation from certain sections of the society in response to the budget presentation.
