    The cynics told us all the "devastation" caused by maria has been wildly exaggerated by PR in order l to get the debt cancelled .

    Don't worry, in a year after the debt has been cleared, it will be in the billions again, and PR will hope another Cat 5 hurricane happens. The best worst thing to happen to PR was the 2 hurricanes that blew the debt right out the door.....

    It took a Cat 5 hurricane to blow the Right's hatred of the Puerto Rican people out into the open.

    Fascinating.

    I don't think Houston is in Puerto Rico, but I'll stand corrected if it is.

    Nah, the bond holders (link to largest bond holders in previous post) already bought at a discount and PR was already working in bankrupt mode.
