Understanding Haiti Development Dilemmas with Roddy Denor and Martin Alexis
Play • 42 min

Roddy Denor and Martin Alexis unfold Haiti's development dilemmas. Between the 80s and 90s, there came the Structural Adjustment Programs. These are a set of combined loans and policies with strings attached to restore political and economically weak nations, most of whom emerge from civil wars. The path for the intended restoration was to create conditions to increase foreign direct investments, reduce taxes and prohibitive regulations, and have less state interference in the economy. And, of course, this followed the boom of international non-governmental organizations and development agencies. In this late setting, Roddy and Martin walk their intellect to carve their statement.
