Puerto Rico’s Economic Crisis: Overview and Recommendations for Action

Puerto Rico and its more than 3.5 million residents are in crisis. As economic and financial conditions have worsened in recent months, we have partnered with community, government, philanthropic, labor and academic leaders and institutions from across the United States and the island to form a national effort to support Puerto Rico. Our message is clear: Millions of American citizens in Puerto Rico are in danger of losing much of what they have unless our federal government acts with bold purpose to stabilize and grow the island’s economy. The time for action is now.
