Earlier this morning my mom recieved a phone call from an old friend she went to college with. He opened a café in Fajardo back in 2014 and now he’s closing up shop by the end of June since the debt crisis is hindering his business gradually. When my mom asked if he could migrate his business within the states, he said that the effects of his business due to what’s going on in Puerto Rico will follow as long as he’s within U.S. territory.
Then it got me thinking based on what we were discussing in class last week on the debt crisis Puerto Rico. I took it upon myself to do my ‘Googles’ about if it’s possible for the Puerto Rican debt would potentially affect America since P.R is a U.S. territory.
That’s when I came across an article on the website: ‘The Register Guard.’ The article – Puerto Rico Debt Crisis Poses A Dilemma for U.S. – talked about P.R problems will benefit America in the long run. In view of the fact that their finical situation reflects on us. Reading this made me a little bit scared since Congress is made up of kids fighting about what is right and what is wrong. All-in-all, this article was informative and it’s a warning to show that if we don’t get our act together then in the long run we’ll fail as a country.
