"For I am a direct descendant of slaves, too near to the actual enterprise to believe that its echoes are over with the reign of emancipation.

I am an economist by training and work primarily as a researcher at the Institute of Caribbean Studies of the University of Puerto Rico. I have taught at various universities in the Caribbean region.
