Calypso + Innovation = Success!
Far from being just a party sound about good times, calypso can, and does, address the concerns of today. Even older tunes that concerned themselves with economic issues of yesteryear can be applicable to our modern times. Case in point, "Cuttin' Wood" by Mighty Terror. This happy ditty, part parable, part cautionary tale, could be used in any entry-level business course. The lady in question owns a saw mill. She has come up against some hard wood which her mill cannot handle. Rather than lose out on the potential income from taking on this massive log, she seeks outside consulting help to inform her of the best way forward. The lesson learned is one for the ages; knowledge is power, seek help before jettisoning any project, and lube. Lots of lube.
