A report on the financial situation of Costa Rica which seems to be getting worse instead of improving. The paper talks about Costa Rica’s attempt to get help from the Worl Bank. Three courses of action that should be taken are a decrease in Costa Rica’s dependence upon imported products, particularly pertroleum products, secure new loans to pay immediate debts, and develop resources within Costa Rica’s boundaries.
