Costa Rican government mulls temporary tax on US dollar capital inflows

Monday, November 1, 2010

The government of Costa Rica is discussing the possibility of temporarily taxing foreign capital coming into the country.

The aim would be to discourage the inflow of US dollars, so helping to raise the value of the US currency.

At least that is what government is thinking, as explained by Costa Rica's second-vice-president, Luis Liberman.
