CCTV: Farnsworth on the Income Gap in Panama

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

COA's Eric Farnworth and CCTV discuss the Central American country's income gap, which Farnsworth says is "wide but narrowing." While Panama is lacking a strong middle class, it does have the advantage of being a service economy, as it works to improve technology, the economy, and education.
