Why Haiti is so poor


Haiti is the first and only country in the world to have a black uprising in order to uproot colonialism and become independant. France and America quickly made sure Haiti wouldn't succeed via boycotts and blockades and reparations.

So why is Haiti so poor? Could it be all those coups to 'democratize' Haiti? Ousting the democratically elected president Jean-Bertrand Aristide TWICE by coups orchestrasted by America and some other nations made sure the corporatocracy had their moneyed interests secured. In subsequent elections, political parties unfriendly to the corporatocracy would not be allowed to run in elections.
