May 26, 2022: Dynamics of a Mixed Economy: Capitalism in Costa Rica

Dr. Vange Hochheimer is an Associate Professor of Economics at Whitworth University and her main research focus is in the area of development finance, human development, and food insecurity in developing countries. 
There is substantial debate about whether a free-market economy maximizes economic and social welfare. Hybrid or mixed economic systems may offer lessons for the future. A mixed economy is an economic system in which the majority of economic activity is left to the free market, but some sectors of the economy are managed by the government. In reality, most economies are mixed. In this presentation, we will about how Costa Rica has thrived from a mixed economy system.
Please join us on May 26th when Dr. Vange Hochheimer talks about the mixed economy system. This is a program you will not want to miss. Don’t forget to invite a guest.
