Costa Rica

The Old is New again:

Former Costa Rican president Oscar Arias, a vocal critic of U.S. foreign policy, is expected to win a second term as president in the Feb. 5 general election, polls show.

Arias won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1987 for brokering an end to civil wars in central America, but voters expect the U.S.- and British-educated politician to look closer to home for his next project, which will be to stop the gradual economic decline of what once was considered among the best-run nations in Latin America.
