Here is one response:
A sad day for Haiti. No experience. No plan. No education. Can’t speak the language let alone proper English plus a history of not being able manage his own personal affairs based on foreclosures, IRS tax liens and his nonprofit scandal.
Here is another:
Wyclef Jean owes the IRS 2.1 million dollars, had his house sold at auction and stole money from his own Haiti ‘charity’.
Those points would appear to be well-taken, but as an economist so often does, I would rephrase the question in terms of "how much" rather than "whether." What is the probability that the "added media scrutiny and international attention" effect will create benefits which outweigh his other deficiencies for the job? I say about ten percent.
