Bill Kannel will be moderating a panel entitled, "Puerto Rico Panel: When Politics Fail" at Smith's High Yield Municipal Bond Conference.
The politics of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico created a complete social meltdown during the hot days of the summer. While the release of 800 pages of Telegram Messages between the Governor and 11 of his officers prompted 100,000s of people to demand his resignation, it was only the final event in a long sad series of corruption. No discussion of Puerto Rico's financial situation or political well-being would be complete with out the Commonwealth's retirees who must compete with bondholders to be paid.
