Following the catastrophic 2010 earthquake in Haiti, this book examines the economic and political challenges facing the country, and argues that a long-term plan is needed if Haiti is going to rise from the ashes of devastation.

Mats Lundahl analyses Haiti's plight from a historical perspective, and investigates the central mechanisms that create underdevelopment in Haiti, notably the interplay between economic and political factors. He provides an account of the failed transition from a predatory state to a developing economy, focussing on the reform attempts and economic policy. The book goes on to address Haiti's current crisis, and the problem of future reconstruction over the next decades, and whether the rescue effort can succeed.

This book is indispensable reading for all interested in the Haitian economy, development economics, and political economy.
