    Puerto Rico has triggered the biggest municipal default in US history

    Puerto Rico has triggered the biggest municipal default in US history, risking years of bitter legal warfare with creditors and an austerity "death spiral" with echoes of Greece.
    The island commonwealth finally ran out of money on Monday after a desperate effort to stay afloat, missing a final deadline for a $58 million payment — handing over just $628,000.
    It implies a sweeping default on much of its $72 billion debt burden, equal to 100% of Puerto Rico's gross national product (GNP) and more than five times the debt ratio of California or Texas.

    We already bowed to the pressure of the local protests and closed our military base at Vieques in the early 2000s. Don't see what other reason we would even want that island for if we don't have a military presence there. I say give Puerto Rico their freedom and see how much more they can screw up their home.

    I read that 20% of US mutual bond funds hold PR debt, Oppenheimer funds in particular have high exposure.

    They already DID, though they aren't working. Fucking Section 8'ers. Got two houses on my block filled with them. Sit outside and smoke. That's all they do.
