More than one million Costa Ricans live in poverty, so how do its leaders justify the “luxury pensions” of a few thousand people who receive, on average, nearly forty-five hundred U.S. dollars a month? Luis Loria, president of Ideas Labs in Costa Rica tells of their success in educating the general public on how luxury pensions infringe upon the freedoms of every tax-paying Costa Rican.
