Asthetics and Economic Issues
The Dominican Republic has had the fortune of not experiencing such disasters in that it does not get affected all too harshly by hurricanes, nor does it worry all too much about economic issues. Ever since 2006, the Dominican Republic's economy has been in an upturn, which has aided in its survival because it does not have to be as dependent on other countries for financial aid as its neighbor. With a stable economy, the country also has a stable infrastructure because it is able to advance itself with the times in order to combat future disasters that may take place, like the earthquake that devastated Haiti in 2010.
