Haiti Was An 'Unfettered Free Market' Paradise Before The Quake
-No regulation on business,
-No Old Age pension plan,
-No unemployment insurance programs,
-No public health care programs,
-No public education (to speak of),
-Almost no income taxation,
-Almost no corporate taxation
-No occupational health and safety regulation
-Small limited government
-No Worker's Compensation plan
... and yet, the main flaw in the ideology of 'unfettered free markets' is that when they fail ... it always takes public/'social' dollars to rescue the situation and clean up the mess.
-If The Free Market System Works So Bloody Well - Why Does The Corporate Sector Always Seem To Need Billions Of Public Tax Dollars To Bail The Bastards Out?
And for those who argue in favor or Haiti's 'unfettered free market' .. please explain why Haiti has the lowest life expectancy and lowest literacy rate in the Western Hemisphere ... and an annual GDP of $733!
