    importing wheels and tires to the DR?

    Sosúa Beach Renovations

    My prediction is that most major construction projects will be canceled or postponed indefinitely. Reason is the great depression that is already in its early state in Europe and in USA that problably will be worse than the last one a hundred years ago.

    Because the FED is inflating the dollar by generating ("printing") at a higher rate than the Banco Nacional does with the Peso. Both, Peso and Dollar, loose against Bananas, Big Macs and services, currently the Dollar is loosing faster. Another effect might be that lots of dollars are not being...

    I found This Hard to Believe

    Yes, for poor campesinos it might well be that they never saw a boat in real. In the late 90s I met a 20 year old who claimed that he would learn everything fast.
