It's time for some straight talk about the CNMI's economic situation, so here it is. No sugar-coating here!
As an aside, I'll mention that I may offer a presentation or two on the CNMI economic situation, to include the tourism situation, for members of the private sector who are interested in such things. I'm not long-winded, so any presentation would be brief, about 30 minutes. If you're interested in attending, let me know; we've got plenty of lead time, I'll probably shoot for sometime this summer.
