The Largest Mall in the Caribbean

Part of the New Caribbean Studies book series (NCARS)


This chapter references the public discourse and debate surrounding out-migration in Puerto Rico and locates speculation as to the possibilities of oppositional thought and action within this context. Additionally, it reflects briefly on how islanders—in their quotidian activities of packing up and speaking out—are often misinterpreted by onlookers from the mainland.
