Does that mean that Puerto Rico would not have been viable as an independent state even if it would have remained under Spanish rule?The tern "limbo" unfortunately is the best definition at this time. Like I said unfortunately. As an independent country it would collapse immediately. The cause would be money, i.e. everything from their commerce and industry to infastructure and population. They just don't have the money, the labot force, the investments, etc. to survive.
