The vast majority of college-educated Haitians are overseas and many of them are very well-connected in their host countries. The economic potential is enormous. 3 million Haitians (probaby closer to 4) that hold $50 000 in equity in their homes (probably higher) currently hold (excluding savings or any other investments or holdings) $ 150 billion in real estate. 3 million Haitians that make $ 20 000 in income for example represent a $ 45 billion market, per year. This is about 10 times the size of the entire local Haitian economy. To put this in perspective, if the diaspora were a country, it would be Uruguay which has about 3.5 million people and an economy worth $ 40 billion. Panama has a similar population and is about half that economically.
