Summit of the Americas - benefits for the people of T and T

The great political moment of the twin-island republic has come to an end, yet the questions remain:

- What real benefits in terms of investment will a summit of this magnitude bring to the country?

- How much has the government spent of taxpayers' hard-earned money?

- What good in terms of answers for issues like combatting the global economic crisis, lfiting the embargo on Cuba, and re-strengthening ties between the US and the region after a political and economic Ice Age brought on by Preseident George W. Bush?

- The final agreement of the summit - is it to be called the Port of Spain Declaration or the Port of Spain Debacle?
