Puerto Rico's Difficult Path Forward

The even tougher steps needed to make the island more self-sustaining are
well-known, but have been found difficult and left untried, said Anthony
Stevens-Arroyo, a native of Philadelphias Puerto Rican diaspora whose long
career as priest, professor and family man included testimony on Puerto
Ricos future before the United Nations Decolonization Committee (starting
in 1978) and the U.S. House of Representatives (1990s):

.

Puerto Rico needs to eliminate its dependency on imported sources of
energy and stop relying on U.S. fuel imports, Stevens-Arroyo told me.
Solar-power companies are already rushing panels and batteries to the
island in hopes of restoring the wrecked electrical grid.

.

The island faces the same problems as other Caribbean islands and
needs to trade and cooperate with them, not just depend on U.S. aid, debt,
and fickle corporate investment.

.

If the U.S. under Trump cant or wont pay for reconstruction and public
services, Puerto Rico should be recognized,  not as an independent country
a 19th-century concept that few Puerto Ricans support  but as an
autonomous political entity that has a right to representation within the
U.N., like the Palestinians. This would make economic development and
trade arrangements with the global community negotiable by Puerto Ricos
elected government.

.

By contrast, at present the U.S. Congress governs the colony, he said.
Though there is still an elected governor and legislator, fiscal power
lies with the seven-member PROMESA oversight board, which favors bankers.
With United Nations status, Puerto Rico would more likely qualify for
participation with the World Bank, UNESCO, and other development grant and
loan funders, subject to the fiscal restraints they place on borrower
governments.
