Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I said part of the reason that Haiti is poor. While I am not denying your statement, I have to reiterate my statement because I know Haiti well.  It is common knowledge (any Haitian will tell you this) that the subdivision (by Petion) of the large estates into small plots of land for redistribution to the peasantry is at the root of Haiti's soil erosion problem.  I have to run, but give me time and I will provide you with unimpeachable sources on this (if you doubt me).
