A while ago I suggested taking a chance on Puerto Rico’s distressed general obligation bonds. The chickens have been coming home to roost for quite some time now but seem finally to have arrived, as explained here, in the New York Times, or here . . . far more colorfully . . . by the great John Oliver.
I don’t see their ever becoming worthless; but interest payments could well be delayed and/or reduced.
The main thing: how do we help restore vitality to the Puerto Rican economy?
Quote of the Day
We Americans have evolved from a tough, resilient people, willing to sacrifice for future generations, into a people who want to feel good now -- at any price -- and let the future take care of itself.~Ross Perot
