Perspicacious

I came across this word in an article by Faiz Ahmed in the Monthly Review from August.  He refers to the Caribbean states having developed a perspicacious outlook by joining ALBA.  It is a formal word for someone having a perceptive insight and understanding of things.  It comes from the Latin word for “seeing clearly,” perspicax.
