I read an article describing why Haiti was poor. It was not that the people were lazy, but that the government acted as a wealth confiscator, which prevented people from accumulating capital OR continuing to work after needs were met.

As wealth is increasingly seized through taxes, fines and fees I can see such a situation as you describe for Haiti occurring.
