Haiti is Living Beyond its Means, Wilson Laleau says

Have you heard the News? Haiti is leaving way beyond its means, Haiti spends 35 percent MORE each year than it has... Wilson Laleau, Haiti's Minister of Economy and Finance, said this recently before businessmen meeting in the Economic Forum of the Haitian private sector...

Men Nouvel... Peyi d'Haiti ap vivi PI WO ke tèt li... An bon Kreyol, dada Haiti WON, l'ap PETE Kare!!! Haiti depanse 35 pousan plis ke li genyen... Se sa Wilson Laleau di... Kisa ou panse de sa

35 percent more??? That's a lot... That's like spending $350 dollars more for every thousand dollars that comes into your pocket.

Not only are you not saving money and creating wealth, you are more broke, more RAZEUR, each year...

Wilson Laleau said: "The means are not the size of the needs."

What do you think about that?

Haitians forget their roots:
The wealth of all Haitians is in the ground that they have abandoned to clog the streets of Port-au-Prince looking for a factory job that does not exist or is rare to find.
God gave us the ground with all its wealth, let us go back to planting, agriculture in Haiti is our wealth from the very beginning and we gave it up to import everything we consume.

I really truly agree and mainly because the general population moneys in circulation is in Gourdes but value is in US currency! What's up with that! I'm in Real Estate, leases and sales are in US Currency and high better said, way up there with no Bank Loans possible! It's a mess! Real Estate loans and Banks generates the economy in every Country in the world except for Haiti because that very thing is non-existent in Haiti! Banks have no money to work with
