The Dominican Government and its Economic Control Público Deposited

This paper discusses how the Dominican government has maintained a stronghold over the economy in a way that has limited the economic prosperity of impoverished communities. The Dominican Republic has been a rich country inhabited by a majority of poor people for years (Black 236). This is because not enough has been done to help the country continue to develop. Moreover, this lack of development is tied to the country’s government and its lack of action. In transparency international's 2008 corruption perceptions index, the Dominican Republic received a score of 3 on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the most corrupt (Hawthorne 138). Instances like these highlight the importance of having to explore where the country’s major income goes to if not to help the areas that are crucially behind in contrast to the country’s richer parts. Through the literature review, the history, economic tendencies, and social welfare in the Dominican Republic were discussed. Additionally, qualitative research was conducted to further analyze the disparities present in the Dominican Republic through the analysis of governmental documents and international reports. The data was divided into three categories pertaining to education funding, disparities in business, and treatments of migrants. This served to solidify the evidence of the large economic gaps present in the country which have hindered and continue to hinder impoverished communities from being able to prosper in the country.
