During the interview it came up that the largest "Re-Set" of sub-prime loans was to hit the country in October of 2008.

Mr. Blanchard predicted that the markets recently affected by "market Shifts" would take their last dip in value sometime in 2009. The good news was (2 comments)

Many agents from the states are setting up shop in Costa Rica and/or working as part time agents there. It does not require a license and there are some fantastic (most guard gated) communities. One of my top agents owns a 1800 sq ft condo several blocks off the beach and intends to retire there in a few more years... My wife and I are going to (2 comments)
