ALBA (and Venezuela) Strengthening Nicaragua's Economy, But That's Not the Whole Story.
Interesting discussion of the increasingly strong Nicaraguan economy. ALBA and Venezuela have helped, but the Ortega government has expanded the Nicaraguan economy in other directions as well. Growth of 5% in Nica economy projected for next year, which is a hell of a lot better than the U.S.'s so-called free market, capitalist economy. Latin American socialism, a mix of different models, is working for the majority of their populations. President Chavez's re-election to a new six-year term yesterday will greatly strengthen ALBA and Latin American development as a whole.
