Like overseas siblings, Greece and Puerto Rico are often compared quantitatively, reduced to statistics that include: pensions, GDP, wages, poverty line, and debt. The truth is that — in the globalized eyes of the EU and the US — Greece and Puerto Rico, respectively, are loophole wonderlands. What is seductive about both locations is common knowledge, but what is not prioritized is how to manage that seduction so that locals are not left licking meatless bones.

In debt, but not indebted to, conceptually permeates WE ARE HERE TO SERVE YOU, an intentionally sarcastic title suggesting an assumed foolishness that in actuality reveals our hyperconsciousness.
