A guest blog on Stanford

If you didn’t know the name Sir Allen Stanford a week ago, you certainly do now following the US authorities charging him and three of his companies with an alleged fraudulent multi-billion dollar investment scheme. But one region where they certainly did know the Stanford name is in the Caribbean (his Stanford International Bank was based in Antigua), not least because of his attempt to ignite Caribbean cricket through his $20 million winner takes-all 20:20 Stanford Superstars v England game last year.

For an interesting perspective on Sir Allen Stanford high-profile presence in the Caribbean and what his fall could mean for the region, check-out this guest blog from chief executive of Caribbean regional carrier LIAT, Mark Darby.
