Show Summary Details


There is a huge financial difference between the citizens of Haiti and the United States. This chapter thus points out that there is a need to be vigilant about the methods used by first world countries as well as international financial institutions which are contributing to political destabilization and may even result in violence and terror in third world countries. The chapter asks the question: what factors contributed to the destabilization of Haiti in its bicentennial year? The chapter proposes an interdisciplinary approach for understanding pressing capitalist development issues with the help of literary forms of representation reflecting on the experiences of poverty and economic injustice.
