Hurricane Maria delivered a serious body blow to the Puerto Rican economy by severely damaging much of the island’s infrastructure. This raises the prospect of a humanitarian crisis on the island and a mass wave of migration to the mainland.
John Mousseau of Cumberland Advisors joined other panelists during a seminar at the American Enterprise Institute that took stock of Puerto Rico’s post-hurricane economic prospects.
Having occurred Monday, November 6, 2017 between 2:00 pm & 4:00 pm, it also explored the appropriate policy response from Washington to the Puerto Rican crisis and the issue of how the island’s debt might be restructured. A livestream of the event was generated from AEI’s YouTube page.
