Pay to the Order of Puerto Rico: The Cost of Dependence

Pay to the Order of Puerto Rico: The Cost of Dependence Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Current policy toward Puerto Rico is costing each American taxpayer $400 a year-a total of $22 billion. This book gives the scandalous history behind one of America's biggest and most expensive tax shelters, the "commonwealth" of Puerto Rico. The authors share the shocking truth about how the American taxpayer is footing a bill for antiquated policy toward this island. Puerto Rican businessman Alexander Odishelidze shares a revealing story of how bad policy is wasting taxpayer dollars and destabilizing the people and region of Puerto Rico, while renowned conservative economist Arthur Laffer bolsters the claims with his undeniable facts and figures. Together they build a convincing case that Puerto Rico must dispense with the chimera of commonwealth and become an independent nation or the 51st state of the United States of America.

Synopsis:

What does it cost for the United States to pay for having Puerto Rico as a territory. This thoughtful and objective book provides the surprising answer.
