In 1982 Carl Stone produced a slim report to the JLP Seagaled Government, "Work Attitudes Survey" (21 years later is still on the market as a classic text endlessly used). In 1992, he produced slim popular study, "Values, Norms and Personality Development in Jamaica" (adopted as a base paper for Prime Minister P. J. Patterson's 'Values and Attitudes' campaign in 1994).
In his 24th March 1992 column in the Jamaica Gleaner, Stone wrote: "For some time now I have avoided commenting on what other columnists are writing. But I must depart from that trend to commend colleague columnist Martin Henry for consistently trying to deal with the deeper moral, development and philosophical issues and taking us away from a total pre-occupation with day to day occurrences and events. His recent piece on the role of declining family life in contributing to social violence was a refreshingly different perspective from the simplistic but popular view that poverty itself accounts for the high level of violence in our country. There is no longer any need to guess or speculate about this issue. A great deal of research has been done on it both at the international level and in our own environment and the explanations are beyond refutation."
