Excellent must read. Factual and compelling. Investigative journalism at its best.

The author does Trump's dirty work here by fighting against free trade. This isn't journalism, this is fake news. Usual diatribe.

In 78 short pages, Klein explains the challenges facing Puerto Ricans before, during, and after Hurricane Maria. There’s a lesson for all of us here from the change-makers who call Hurricane Maria their biggest teacher.
