CNE Review

The CNE Review is a monthly publication of the Center for a New Economy that analyzes public policy issues in depth and their impact on people.

In this publication, CNE’s team of experts addresses important issues for the future of Puerto Rico in areas such as economics, energy, housing, debt restructuring, hurricane reconstruction, federal affairs, and of course, the continuing pandemic, among other subjects. We provide our readers with a broader, wide-angle perspective on a single issue or topic per month in a useful and effective format.
