  • Can You Profit From Prisons?  [View article]
    Season 3 of Orange is the New Black deal with private prisons. They make a great picture of them.

    I fully agree with your last sentence.

    I can't imagine an unarmed person becoming an active shooter. Guns don't kill, people with guns kill. Let's keep them apart.

    I am OK with alcohol, tobacco, even marijuana. My morals don't allow me to invest in guns or prisons. I, also, need to sleep well at night.

    By the way, bringing agriculture stocks, as Monsanto, to the moral investing debate, is really funny.

  • Congress Is Ready To Act On Puerto Rico  [View article]
    Daniel, would you, please, explain how removing political power to constitutionally elected officials, giving all authority to non-elected, non-representative officials whose agenda is aligned only to bondholders, is good to puertorricans?

    I catched your sarcasm, and I still believe it is a great idea. I really like to read smart articles of people who have different way of thinking. They can change my ideas. That is good. We can always improve and become better investors listening to others who have something smart to say.

    Sometimes that is not the case. Sometimes people come here to write absurdities. I have no time for non-sense. You are probably fighting hard to not lose my penny. But my time is more valuable.

    Seeking Alpha should provide us with a way to block some contributors. I mean, I receive an email for every Tesla article, but if the article was written by Paulo Santos (Tesla or anything else), I prefer to skip it.

    That way I save my time and save SA an undeserved penny.

    US companies don't pay the same salaries and benefits to American citizens in its colonies than in the states, don't even dream of fair pay to people in India.

    Buy back boosted NAV by $0.23, but then, NAV is up by only $0.09. I don't feel like smiling.

    I dreamed of a hurricane hitting hard NY and NJ a few years ago. According to my dream, it had never happened before, and it was unthinkable. But, certainly, it was a dream. It never happened.

    Some people believe that government should be abolished and the society should return to feudal order, so wealthy people have full control of everything.

  • Puerto Rico - Pirates Of The Caribbean To Bond Investors - You Get What's Left, If Anything  [View article]

    You, probably don't know that the average household income is significantly lower than Mississippi, the lower among the states. You, probably, don't know that the sales tax is currently 11.5%, and it is going to be raised during the next weeks. You probably don't know that all the goods imported from the US are soundly expensive because, by federal law, we have to import goods using the US merchant marine, and no one other. You probably don't know that the people of Puerto Rico used to pay electricity at a rate of $0.30 Kwh, and it is lower now only because of the lower prices on oil.

    There are many things you don't know because you don't have to work two different part-time jobs at $7.25 per hour, without any benefit (having a bachelor or higher degree) in a country where Walmart receives incentives from the government, to make business here.

    Yes, Puerto Rico is a tale of two countries, as well as the US. We, here, have wealth redistribution in the same way that the GOP enjoys the present wealth redistribution in the US: to the top tier. But the top tier isn't asked to pay.

    Regards, Alberto

    "Padilla's predecessor, Governor Fortuna (sic) accelerated economic reforms, laid off 30,000 employees and likely would have continued on that path if he had been re-elected."

    As a result, about 60,000 jobs were lost in the private sector, and the recession became deeply worst. People is leaving the country at a rate of one thousand families per week. Yes, if Fortuño had been reelected, the lay off of government employees would be now, probably over 50,000, the private jobs destroyed over 100,000, and we would be incredibly worst.

    If property taxes are raised, the rate of migration to the US will also raise. The result will be a record number of houses foreclosed by banks. This is too simple: there is no money in people's pockets to pay more taxes.

    Coming next, the government has no cash in hand to pay salaries, and of course, a health, security and public services shut down will be inevitable. After that, all those "purely political reasons" will soon change minds of the president and the Congress.
