I select Scott Lash and John Urry and their emphasis on the postmodern experience being dependent on class experiences. Miller (2014) treats this issue as high-, mid-, and low-colonial capital experiences. Colonial capital is largely determined by the stock of ones family and skin pigmentation, education, social graces, and financial capital.

Jamaicans who are classified as high-colonial capital subjects tend to live in Kingston and St. Andrew, exude appropriate social graces, hold foreign based university degrees and either control, and, or own the largest number of assets. In contrast, mid-colonial capital subjects are not socially dominant. Even though mid-colonial Jamaicans may be college educated professionals (e.g., banker, teachers, nurses etc.), they gain most of their income from salaried employment in high colonial capital family business and in government jobs. Low-colonial capital subjects gave birth to the majority, if not, all mid-colonial capital Jamaicans and therefore it is understood that the more well-educated Jamaicans lack an important colonial capital; deep family lineage.

The selected scholars focus on capitalism\’s global expansion and increased distributive capacities–fully explain West Indian post-colonial experiences in which the standards of success are determined by global economic factors. For example, Jamaica is heavily indebted due wholesale importations and brain drain from mass migration to the metropoles.
