Summary "In the midst of significantly changing economic and political relations with the United States, Puerto Rico is struggling to find a new - and effective - development path. James Dietz examines the island's contemporary development trajectory, providing a comprehensive and up-to-date analysis." "Dietz considers where Puerto Rico's economy is today, and why and how its challenging state of affairs might be improved. Throughout, building on his acclaimed Economic History of Puerto Rico, he explores the historical, social, and political forces that have accompanied Puerto Rico's course from the 1940s to the first decade of the twenty-first century."--Jacket.
