  • Abstract

    This is the replication package for Arrested Development? Puerto Rico in an American Century. Using a new GDP index for 1900 to 1940, I show that income per capita grew at impressive rates during direct American rule and Puerto Rico escaped the worst ravages of the Great Depression. I also find the recent growth slowdown is partly a statistical artifact.
