Nicaragua: el desafío pendiente de superación de la pobreza
[Nicaragua: a pending challenge to overcome poverty]
AbstractThis paper discusses why Nicaragua is today one of the poorest countries in the region of Latin America and the Caribbean. Lack of sustained economic growth is viewed as the main cause of poverty in the country. The effects of political conflicts on the breaks of the long term growth path are analized and it is warned about the risk of a new disruption in the economic development of the country due to the absence of a political consensus as a nation.
