They Said “Make It Look More Prosperous”, So We Put Cement All over It: Puerto Rico’s Infrastructure. Why is Puerto Rico taking so long to reconstruct its destroyed infrastructure after Hurricane Maria? Is it the debt? Is it poor planning? Or could it be that the unclear status of Puerto Rico and unrealistic demands of the government affected its development programs in the 1950s, which led to a deficit of resources and bad infrastructure planning? Join us for History Seminar and find out the truth about all that cement.
