  "abstract": "<p>The scenic island of Puerto Rico is beautiful from coast to coast. However, when one takes a deeper dive into her political climate, government, and the state of her people, it won&#39;t take very long to realize the potentially irreparable harm being done. From seemingly unpayable debt to a vicious cycle of corruption, and being hit by the most deadly hurricane since 2004, Puerto Rico&rsquo;s socioeconomic standing in the world is quickly plummeting. In order to understand the current state of this nation and why they are suffering so violently, it&#39;s important to understand that these issues are nothing new, rather they&rsquo;ve simply been magnified.&nbsp;</p>",
