Interesting (and lengthy) article explaining the causes and realities of the food riots in Haiti:
“Haiti doesn’t suffer from a lack of food because there’s no food, no! It is because the rich don’t understand the poor.” -Sylvie St. Fleur
A lot of it comes down to inequalities between the rich and poor, as well as big time mismanagement and corruption (within Haiti and without—U.S. aid practices share some of the blame).
