    Pat Robertson aside, there were also educated people at work in Haiti, all those years: Pre-disaster. Mostly, it is now clearly pointless to ask, "What did they know, and when did they know it." Market Intervention into building safety codes, was however: Apparently not in place! The Presbyterian Miracle of "Laissez Faire," was apparently everywhere in place!

    Flawed Building Likely a Big Element - NYTimes.com

    And so anyone sees what the RNC, and all conservatives, generally intend. Cynics can point to the "laissez faire" spirit in the building codes of the failed Soviet Bloc, but probably no one can explain why they should. Cynics do not point to the new lack of need for building codes in America, now that mortgages, construction, and lending have more or less ceased to exist. In fact, GOP doesn't seem to be entralled at the "laissez faire," entrepreneurial spirit in America, at all.

    Mostly, anyone is led to understand that President Ronald Reagan would have loved it! Mostly, especially Hollywood didn't have to be asked!

    What building code could they have put in place? Make sure you mix at least three pounds of bullcrap into the mud mix to make their bricks.

    Without MONEY there is no way to improve the living standard of the people in order for them to get the things that they want or need.

    Haiti is on the same island as the Dominican Republic. On the west end it's a 3rd world hellhole, while on the eastern side it's a somewhat developed and affluent society.

    Why?...Because Haiti is a borderline communist dictatorship, whose "leadership" keeps most of the international relief money that pours into that nation, while the DR (corrupt as it may be) has a mostly market-based economic model.

    Without the freedom to keep the fruits of one's labors, there is no wealth amongst the people in order to build any structure to withstand such a calamity.

    Karl Marx had suggested the centralization of credit in the original Manifesto of 1848. Credit markets tend to become a source of money, now 165 years later. Governments tend to be engaged in the regulation of the value of the money. The metal crap almost gets in the way, except in the gaming resorts.

    Actually, the creation of the credit market ends even the pretense of laissez-faire, a concept that clearly cannot exist in a functioning economy. The buildings mess in Haiti is not an outcome of a properly functioning economy, but is an outcome of laissez-faire.

    So there is no quarrel with the ihopehelfails poster's contention. Even in East Africa there needs to be a basis of credit, like even socialist mainland China has in place: For an economy to function. That takes planning, and any more is easily centralized. The crazy electronic machines do the computing, and even send the images and messages based on logical programming: That makes that happen.

    Haiti has tourist and travel advantages, and probably out-sourcing, resort-level advantages. What-ever else can be created on the Island is an asset-base, of a credit market. Millions might want to have outsourced lives in the climate and culture of Haiti, as opposed to an outsourced post somewhere on the Afghani-Pakistan border, for example. Only General Betrayus: Seems not to think so. American Youth get sent there instead.

    Planning and market interventionism are directly required in Haiti. Haiti can start, and others can follow. The asset value of Haiti is in place. The infrastructure in Haiti is not in place.

    Afghanistan and Iraq have the same kinds of problem, once the stupid Westerners get the uncivilized military presence out, and re-interpret the asset values that are Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Haiti might be thought competitive by comparison, except for any energy reserves or innovative strategic placement of technologies. Even Afghanistan possibly has a strategic, business place, being near to the former Soviet Republics. There is a liaison even with the Indian sub-continet. India is starting to manufacture affordable cars.

    "I have NFI what I'm talking about" is much more cogent and honest.

    But then, you'd have to stop posting altogether.

    Welcoming everyone to the wonderful world of Dictatorship is Dude Poster personally.

    Everyone sees what "freedom" is to people like Dude Poster, believer in Haiti and Dominican Republic as what America should really be like!

    Everyone can see it posted above.

    Actually, the Haiti Quake was relatively shallow in the earth, at its epicenter, and near to Port Au Prince.

    The Dominian Republic felt the shallow quake, that impacted the immediae area, but that is all.

    And so it went on to police state abuses, as is usual, with support of the Republican National Commitee, and dude Poster, their kind of spokesperson.

That was finally even supported in Third German Republic, and is supported now in America! Light-Skinned ethnics, in America, have Gaming Houses now!)
