Haiti and the African Union: Why the AU cannot solve the problems of the African masses

Parasitic Capitalism: The debt in Puerto Rico 

Puerto Rico’s government officials recently announced that the country will not be able to concurrently provide necessary social services and satisfy its $2-billion-dollar debt payment due on July 1, 2016
