#3537: Dorce/Gill exchange joined by Poincy

From: Jean Poincy <caineve@idt.net>

In fact it is economically feasible that Ayiti pulls itself away from
globalization to become an economic success with great wealth. Yes
Aristide can avoid dealing with the international financial system and
make it happen. However, it remains to know how he would do it. Tying
Ayiti's economic development to the international financial system as a
must element is what renders development impossible.

The country may receive all the financial aids in the world, but will
never be able to budge one inch. Financial aids understood, as a flow of
money is not wealth, but a means to acquire wealth. I've expanded on
this aspect once before. Wealth, which in turn is the means to bring
economic satisfaction, is what being sought for by all and is in the
environment itself. Strictly speaking, besides being a measure of
wealth, money can't be equated to wealth.  No matter how much money
available to the country if there is no wealth to acquire, all the money
received will have dirt value. 

This is why authorities pocket the money, rather than buying the wealth
from the outside. There is no wealth produced in the country that could
make the loans in cash circulate within the county to create more
values. Rather the cash makes a U-turn to the external financial system
without benefiting the country. Authorities that feel they would be at
lost, prefer pocketing most of the money and spend little on some bogus
projects. Is it an economic rational behavior from their part or what?

Considering this very important aspect of an economy, it is possible to
resolve things without an influx of cash. Have the people engaged in
exploiting the environment to produce the necessary wealth for their
utility? If it were the case, the country would be on the road to
success. Again how to do it is to be conceived and debated. How Aristide
would think of doing it is the question to ask him if he really wants to
do it without external help. At any rate, the very nature of the economy
in Ayiti requires that it begins as if it was in the dark ages. Ayiti
just can't jump too high without burning its tail on this ground.

Nonetheless, the country would not need to embrace autarchy, since
exchange or trade would be the engine of its further or sustained
economic growth as it begins to produce its own wealth. Would one tell
me that the economic refugees were engaged in the process of producing
wealth, but prevented from doing so? Having reached the point of inertia
in their thinking process, the economic refugees allow their cowardice
dictate their fate on the sea. The political situation is just an
excuse. I think it is correct to return them to Ayiti regardless their
circumstances. Seeking political asylum should not even be an issue for
whomever got picked up from the sea.

Ayiti has lived, lives and will live
