Over the past decades, the United States government maintained a certain foreign policy towards other countries in an attempt to benefit themselves. Debates have been made towards the policy that the U.S was using to control other nations, but it wasn't an obstacle for the U.S government. The U.S government has been taking advantages of other countries in need, to make profits for themselves. Many of the countries suffer a relapse after being involved with the United States; Jamaica's economy is no exception to what the United States have done to be rich. The United State's connection to Jamaica began in the 1960s (with Jamaica's immigration. After the Jamaicans became poor, they ran out of business and needed some money, so they Jamaican government went to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for help. And afterwards, they couldn't payback the debt, and kept borrowing from the IMF and agreeing to the policies placed by the U.S government on the IMF loans.
