Since the 1983 US led invasion, the economics of Grenada have been primarily a free market, structured on private investment in the tourism and vacation home market (GIDC, 2013).  Limited agriculture production has been in the decline since the 1950’s and suffered near complete devastation from the back to back effects of hurricanes Ivan (2004) and Emily (2005) (GIDC, 2013).  A number of call center service companies have attempted to establish additional service offerings in Grenada but the primary economic diver continues to be tourism (GIDC, 2013).  The long term establishment of St. Georges University (founded 1976), a private international medical school, results in increased rents, traffic and business in the southwestern corner of the island and plays a vital role in the islands overall economy (Ministry of Finance and Planning, 2010).
