Costa Rica News – Well when seems that if you are looking for making millions in Costa Rica, it seems that it might be a little harder than you think. I am assuming these numbers are not based on the millionaires that have homes here or people that have scammed millions. This just includes people that are living here and are residents. I wonder how many of those people are in government?
Having lived in Costa Rica, this might be for several reasons, including in most cases Costa Ricans do no possess a strong work ethic and are happy just getting by in life. They also know that almost everything will be provided by the government, kind of the way that Obama wants to make the USA.
85 millionaires live in Costa Rica with a total accumulated fortune of $12 billion, and this makes the country with the second fewest in Latin America.
The information is provided by Wealth-X, a sign of intelligence and wealth analysis based in Singapore (Southeast Asia), in its second annual report.
