Honduras is a small and impoverished country located in Central America its neighbours are El Salvador, Guatemala, and Nicaragua. Honduras has a GDP of 18.55 billion dollars compared to New Jersey which has a GDP of 465.55 billion dollars. Honduras' economy is mainly agricultural focusing on cash crops such as tobacco, coffee, bananas, and palm oil. Garments are also an important export of Honduras' economy accounting for 30% of its exports. Manufacturing has become a profitable industry because of the lower cooperate taxes, poor working conditions, and lower payment to the workers. Despite Honduras' economic growth it suffers through a slew of social, economic, and political problems. Such as the drug war, corruption, high unemployment across the youth, rampant poverty, and poor infrastructure.
The Drug War
To relief Honduras' drug war the issue of poverty must be addressed which is forcing youths to participate in the drug war to make enough money to survive due to the high employment Honduras' has. In my social ethics, capitalist companies such as Avianca create jobs that could serve as alternatives and generate income for the country. Although the issues of corruption still persist it is a good start for Honduras.
