The biggest problem with Haiti is its upper class.

They only live for the moment.

That is why they moved to the mountains, so they can be protected.

But if they thought for the country, they would have built instead of destroying industries.

It will take bold, and innovative thinking to get this vision to reality.

But it's not that difficult.

Because if you help people relocate, pay them to work to build this and pay them fair wages to work on these resorts properties, they will not destroy it because they need it.

The problem is that most poor Haitians do no see value in things because as soon as they think they have something it's taken away from them.

But if they see long term prospects, they will back it up 150%.

If you don't believe me, look back at how they had hope and supported Aristide.

That kind of spirit will rally them.

Unfortunately, I'm not as hopeful for the wealthy because most of them are foreigners with no real interest in Haiti.

Their roots are elsewhere and they just pack up and take a vacation when things go bad.

But to answer your original question: HELL, YEAH!!! This is the way Haiti was back in the 40's and 50's. I have a 1948 book of Haiti at home to prove it.
