This is a great country with a lot going on. Nevertheless, I am still amazed with the behaviour of the business class and the ideological content of public debate. Today an influential talk show quoted the Heritage Foundation and criticized a small expansion of public debt... in the midst of the crisis!

My wife and I travelled yesterday to Guatemala where I will visit friends, give a three day workshop and do some interviews. It is an exciting opportunity to learn more about Central America?s current (difficult) situation. I was strike by how conservative business leaders are in this country! A couple of them were yesterday on TV claiming that the government had already distributed enough land because it had given 240 plots in the last ten years! Amazing!
