So who is it that has been responsible for the shoddy infrastructure over the past few generations of Haitians?


Haitians sometimes refer to them as the Bambam, each letter the initial of one of the six families. During tense times under populist President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, when politicians stoked class warfare and pointed to the nation's egregious income gap, they were called MREs. Not after the packaged military "meals ready to eat"; rather, the initials stood for "morally repugnant elites."

The story above follows one of the members of the six families:




Gregory Mevs leaped from his armored silver Toyota SUV and marched past the guards and mango trees into what serves these days as the center of the Haitian government.

[...]

He hobnobs with people like Bill Clinton, George Soros and the chief executives of the world's largest corporations.

[...]

The Mevs family owns all the petroleum storage facilities in the country, 30% of the Internet business, a 2.4-million-square-foot industrial park and a network of 50 warehouses for food and other material, among many other properties.


Greed and collusion are what built the Haiti which was so horribly destroyed in a moment.
