Abstract:

The island of Puerto Rico is presently going through a period of serious economic and political problems. Experts blame these problems in the present political relationship between Puerto Rico and the United States. The study evaluates the viability of statehood as a solution to the islands problems and its potential implications for the caribbean basin stability. The study also analyzes Puerto Rican statehood as a deterrent to Cuban-Soviet expansionism in the Caribbean Basin. The study concludes that statehood is a viable solution to Puerto Ricos problems and also a deterrent to Cuban-Soviet expansionism in the region. Author
