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.

We dedicate this issue to analyzing these three challenges confronting Puerto Rico.
As we commence yet another school year, we are dedicating this edition of the CNE Review to analyzing Puerto Rico’s largest and most important higher education institution, the University of Puerto Rico.
On the 5th anniversary of the enactment of PROMESA, the CNE Review takes a look at how PROMESA has evolved, what has been overlooked, its costs to Puerto Rico, and its consequences.

In the first edition of our new publication, the CNE Review, we take stock of the post-storm reconstruction and recovery process as we approach the beginning of yet another hurricane season in the Atlantic Ocean.
