George Lehman, E.D.M., business studies division chair and director of the Collaborative MBA, will discuss “Having It Both Ways: Costa Rica as an Alternative to the Capitalism-Socialism Dichotomy” at Friday Colloquium on Nov. 18, 2016.
The presentation is free and open to the public beginning at 4 p.m. in Centennial Hall’s Stutzman Lecture Hall.
Lehman will speak about the economy of Costa Rica, one of the most prosperous in Central America. He visited Costa Rica last summer with the Collaborative MBA program. Lehman will discuss their economy including key decisions made by the government and how a large portion of the population came to be employed in worker-owned cooperatives. This is particularly true of the coffee industry.
