May 17, 2011 | Filed Under Letters 

Dear Editor, Now that we have accepted capitalism as our development paradigm, it is sometimes tragic to watch how private sector interests seem to triumph over matters related to social and human development. With all our talk of concern about alcohol use in Guyana, there is a slap in the face of those who have […]
