No free lunches

A massive jobs creation program based on hydroelectric projects has been on the table. The tricky part is attracting foreign investment. If you really mean what you say about letting Honduras solve it’s own problems without foreign interventionism, then these type of projects become problematic. Foreign investment always come with strings attached and expectations, and this almost always translates into foreign interventionism. As they say, there are no free lunches. Lastly, I’m afraid Honduras’ problems are much deeper at this point than anything many jobs could possibly address. There exists a real feeling by a huge portion of the population that they have been robbed of their democratic rights that they have again been disrespected. Jobs alone will not make things right.
