Guest speaker, Manuel Morales, Business Promotion Advisor and Author, talk was entitled, "Puerto Rico's Economic Future: Utopia or Dystopia". He sees our opportunity to grow with good governance, if we put emphasis on small business and family business activity to increase the labor participation rate, which now stands at 40%. That is where the jobs are generated. They would form the backbone of our economy and are an indispensable condition in the formation of local capital. Our speaker is optimistic. His talk created a good number of questions and feedback. Thanks to Past President Jorge Gonzalez for bringing us this timely program.
