So, think this is a worthwhile bet?
The standard of living in Puerto Rico after two hurricanes is higher than that in Cuba before any hurricanes this year.
Yes, including PR’s near total loss of power.
Nevertheless, in some of the worst-hit areas of the capital the operation was impressive and, government propaganda aside, the truth is that much of Cuba is getting back to normal after the devastating storm.
It’s that “normal” which is under discussion…..
Puerto Rico is an island mired in debt. Its crippling financial crisis is not recent, it has been happening for the past decade. Investment in infrastructure has not been seen in years, one long-term resident told me.
If so, the economic chickens have come home to roost in the most terrible of ways.
Quite, but which is worse?
