    the reservations are way, way out,
    and that creates structural disadvantages
    that are almost insurmountable.

    it's even worse with the history, the
    poor investment and the industries that
    have been developed have not been to
    grow sustainable industries in the reservations
    but to serve as money laundering enterprises
    for a few well connected types at a terrible
    price to the larger society.
