Bankers Said to Be Behind Puerto Rico Crisis

 The commonwealth’s financial woes didn’t happen by accident—they were the result of decades of public immiseration and private gain.


It is clear from the article at the link below that Puerto Rico's current misery didn't happen by accident.   As usual with situations of this kind, the profit motive has been alive and well in our island "nation" to the south.   

We must remember that the profit system is of real flesh and blood people.  These people make decisions to benefit themselves, often regardless of the needs of other people.   All too often the result is suffering and even tragedy.  

It doesn't have to be.
