Nicaragua: outstanding mitigation of economic crisis
The article includes many tables showing what has been happening over the last few years. Areas covered include employment, education, health care and more. This one paragraph sounds like reality from where I am:
The way most Nicaraguans measure their well-being, though, is almost entirely based on their day to day experience - whether or not they have access to some form of employment, to what extent their income covers the cost of living, whether their kids are able to attend school, to what extent they are able to overcome ill health, whether the basic infrastructure they depend on (roads, transport, electricilty, sanitation) is in a better or worse state that last year, etc.
Now, for those who will not agree with the analysis (and I know there will be a lot of you), offering some facts to counter the information presented would be a lot more useful to everyone than ranting about the "leftist", "pro-FSLN" or whatever slant. Maybe it has a slant but the numbers presented seem to support the conclusions.
