Nicaragues economy is booming.
The country is the fourth-largest tourism destination in the world after the United States, Japan and South Korea.
But many locals say that the economy isn’t growing, and that the government is mismanaging the economy.
We’re living in a time where the economy is stagnant, but it’s not growing, said Nicaraguan economist Antonio Ruiz, adding that it’s important to understand what the real economy looks like, because people aren’t always getting what they want.
We are the fourth largest tourist destination in Latin America, after the U.S., Japan and Korea, according to the Tourism Ministry.
It has a $1.3 billion economy and a population of about 1.5 million.
But it is struggling to make ends meet.
Ruiz, who heads the Institute for Local Economic Development (ILA) and is an assistant professor at the University of the Caribbean, said the government was only doing what it could to stimulate the economy, but that in the end, it wasn’t enough.
“They are very worried that they don’t have enough money to hire new people.
They are afraid that the tax revenues are not enough,” he said.
“They don’t see how they can make the money go into the budget.
They have no money.”
As for Nicaraguans lack of basic necessities, Ruiz said he thinks it has something to do with the country’s long history of corruption.
“There is corruption.
There is bribery.
There are corruption and bribery and corruption and corruption,” he added.
Ruoz said Nicaraguans have to be aware of the possibility of corruption because the government’s policies often rely on it.
“You can go to any hotel, you can go for a dinner, and you will find that some people are involved in the hotel,” he explained.
“And you will have an opportunity to get away with that, or you can be a victim of corruption.”
According to Ruiz and others, Nicarags government is underfunded and understaffed, which makes it harder for businesses to compete.
And, Ruos, who has lived in the country for more than 20 years, said he is concerned that corruption will worsen as the country grows.
“I worry that corruption and mismanagement is going to become a major problem for the economy because the [government] has so little money,” he told ABC News.
“We are in a transition period in the economic development of the country.
We don’t know what’s going to happen next.”
Ruiz added that it was important to realize that corruption isn’t always a problem, because it could affect a person’s life and their livelihood.
“In the U, you’re paying your taxes to the government.
In the U., you’re working at the government to make sure you get your money’s worth.
It’s very different from the situation in Nicaragas,” he noted.
“But you also have to realize, if you’re corrupt, there is a risk of being a victim.”
Nicaragua is a very diverse country with a diverse population, including indigenous peoples, Christians, Muslims and others.
But Ruiz says Nicaraks government is also heavily dependent on tourism, which is based on the need for income and income.
“Nicaraguas economic growth is dependent on the growth of tourism, because the people are the ones who are supporting it.
So you have a lot of government workers, and it’s very difficult to hire people,” Ruiz explained.
The economic situation in Nicaragua is “disappointing,” Ruys told ABC.
“It’s not just the lack of infrastructure, it’s the lack and corruption.
It just shows that the situation isn’t going to improve.
And it’s a problem for all of us.”
The ABC News team visited Nicaragnas airport to ask about the economy and the government corruption that has resulted in some people fleeing.
We asked about the challenges of Nicaragoans in general and Ruiz in particular.
Nicaraguan tourism has grown exponentially over the past 20 years.
The economy is expected to grow an estimated 8 percent this year.
But Ruiz warned that people don’t always get what they pay for, which can create a lot more tension.
“People don’t understand what’s happening because of the lack, and the corruption,” Ruis said.
He said that people in the government have to understand the situation, because they have to pay taxes and support infrastructure, and so they have a responsibility to try to solve this situation.
“But if you don’t solve the problems, you will be stuck in a situation where you are going to end up like a country that’s just not sustainable,” he continued.
Ruins comments are the latest from Ruiz who said Nicareans have “too much power” and that he doesn’t think the government will change anything.
“No government will
