Alternate title:Costa Rica
Summary:The topics of economic development, education, and self-help are featured in this program. We see how the country uses coffee and banana exports to propel itself forward as a developing nation; how and why it chose educating its people over building an army; and how it remains a peaceful democratic anomaly in Latin America"--Container.
