Abstract: Many small states manage to generate a relatively high GDP per capita in comparison to other developing countries in spite of their high exposure to harmful exogenous economic shocks. This would seem to suggest that there are factors which may offset the disadvantages associated with economic vulnerability. As explained in the previous chapter, this could be associated with a policy framework conducive to resilience building. This chapter examines the relationship between economic vulnerability and economic resilience and presents a number implications associated with the juxtaposition of the two conditions.
