Just cut spending here and in the States, too

Kudos to you and your team for providing several excellent ideas for raising money in Costa Rica. Concise, creative and constructive. It was the best article I have read in five years in any journal in this country. My hope is for Costa Rica to find a way to prevent the same pitfalls of their neighbor to the north. The U.S.A. spends $300 billion per month and only takes in $180 billion per month. The name of the game is to just cut spending. It would be interesting to note the same numbers for Costa Rica.

To the curmudgeon from Puntarenas whose penchant for Betty Crocker box top coupons is superseded only by his inability to fathom the quality of life afforded by Costa Rican culture and lifestyle: “May you have fun in Panama and may your biscuits always rise. We won’t miss your negative energy. Pura vida!”
