"It's about power," says Scheila C. Jhonson, an American businesswoman, co-founder of BET, CEO of Salamander Hotels and Resorts, and the first African-American woman to attain a net worth of at least one billion dollars.

"If you have the money, give to society," she said in a CNN business interview.

"Then you're getting power. People will start to notice you. Use that power appropriately, reach out and feel secure within yourself to be able to go out and help others. And that's the only way we're going to get stronger."

Do you feel that the richest Haitians use their power appropriately? Do they feel secure within themselves to go out and help other?

The biggest question is: Do they want to?
