Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Other Caribbean islands and countries are doing better, some much better. The ones that were colonized by the British and Dutch seem to be doing the best and the former French and Spanish colonies are the worst. It is obvious when you visit that the British left behind superior cultural institutions in education, government and law. I did buy a mahogany ladle in Haiti though for a dollar. St. Lucia, Belize and the Caymans are my favorites. Haitians should beg the British to re-colonize Haiti.
