TICO BULL – Mediocrity at its best. Our minister of Finance, Helio Fallas, talking about the country’s production recently said that although ours is growing less, it is still better than in other countries in Latin America.

This type of thinking by the country’s leaders shows the fallacy of comparing us to a region that is extremely behind and which we are the leaders?

Why not compare Costa Rica to European or Asian countries?

Comments like these prove  over and over that the leadership of this county thinks Ticos (Costa Ricans) are dumb, don’t understand anything.

This is clearly a question of popularism deceiving the masses. If it sounds good, it must be.

The minister’s last name (Fallas) honours his many “faults”.
