    This may come as a surprise, but I"D LOVE for Haiti to become a first world nation....If the third world is the best these people can do I'm sad.

    Just don't expect other people to give Haiti it's wealth for them.

    Last I heard, about 2-3 months ago, most people were still living in rubble.

    Most of the money got taken by the government.



    brace yourselves

    The liberal government.

    Any aid that goes to third world countries needs to be
    -Educational books
    -Solar panels
    -Books on farming

    Used books would be worth more than money. Knowledge is worth its weight in gold to the third world.

    Haiti has been screwed since the day the West took it over.

    For a very brief time after the BLACKS threw out the FRENCH Haiti was exporting goods and really was starting to make an economic go of it.

    But then the FRENCH used gunboat diplomacy and embargos to prevent that nation from being able to export, and thereby forced that nation to accept an enormous DEBTLOAD that kept Haiti virtuallly bankrupt for over 100 years.

    It would take a near-fascist regime investing billions of dollars about two generations to overcome the many problems that society has right now.

    And NOBODY is going to make that kind of investment in that place because the cost of repairing that society exceeds the society's potenial returns.

    Actually, Haiti is a European creation. Black were imported to work on sugar plantations. The banishment of whites explains why the vast majority of the country is still living in the 19th century.

    What happened was that when Haiti won independence in 1804 and blacks took over the sugar plantations everything went to hell in a handbasket. One of the arguments Southern plantation owners used to justify secession just before the civil war was the woeful state of Haiti 50 years after independence, proving, they said, that blacks were incapable of governing themselves.

    Really? Under the Monroe doctrine, had the French attempted to use gunboat diplomacy to interfere in the affairs of Haiti they would have been blown out of the water by the U S Navy.

    It took whites 40,000 years of evolution in ice-age Europe to evolve a population with the average intelligence necessary to produce and maintain an industrialized, technologically driven economy. I don't think two generation is enough for Haiti to catch up.

    Western companies would love to outsource factory work to a country with people willing to work for a few dollars an hour (where the average income is less than $2 per DAY). However, experience has shown they cannot make money doing business in a country that can't even keep the electricity running and has a work force that is by and large un-trainable.

    Why throw money down this snake pit if it isn't going to improve? Wouldn't it be better to send used books on farming, science, etc?

    I certainly hope you're enjoying the wealth that the white population gives you. The first class educational system and the high standards of living.

    there is nothing left in Haiti. at least the Dominican Republic saved some of their trees and were smart enough to have tourist safe areas to bring in outsiders to engender good will with the outside world. even if they were on of the main launching points of AIDS
