    '...some sort of social justice should be forced on Haiti's upper class?' Well, the lower classes did elect the progress Jean Bertrand Aristide, who rejected demands to adopt the IMF manifesto to privitize Haitian industries and open the country up to free trade. He was summarly removed by a US, Canadian, and French backed coup that worked to ensure the dominance of the Haitian ruling class. As a result, the rural people were forced into the cities; Haiti, once self-dependent for rice, now has to import it from the US; its state concrete and flower mills (among other natioinal interests) were sold to American interests which closed them down. There is absolutely no interest on the part of the so-called doner states to restore real democracy as it provides few benefits to Wall Street.
