This chapter contextualizes the crisis ensuing from the 2010 earthquake by looking at the rhetoric surrounding U.S. aid and intervention in Haiti. It explores what a Marshall Plan for Haiti would look like and whether or not such a plan would require an ideological shift in the ways in which Haiti’s place in history might be reconceived so that such a plan might actually create results that, to date, have escaped the engagement of the international community. The chapter questions how Haiti’s successful revolution but besieged sovereignty could be reread and negotiated under the auspices of a Marshall Plan devised to reconstruct not only Haiti’s physical and economic infrastructures but also its ability to operate independently in the global arena.

Keywords:   2010 earthquake, U.S. aid, revolution, sovereignty
