What Should the "New Haiti" Look Like?

What should the economic reconstruction of Haiti look like? Will importing more low-wage garment factories bring sustainable job recovery, as Hillary Clinton and others advocate? Or is this a chance for rebuilding in a new direction? On the next Your Call, we'll continue our series Agenda for a New Economy as we talk about Haiti's economy--almost 4 months after the earthquake. Join us live at 11 or send us an email at What do you think is the best direction for Haiti's economic recovery? And what is the responsibility of the international community? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
