The american dream life liberty pursuit of happiness 22 x 10.jpg

This week Lisle Head and Corey kick off the show with a loose talk on the new vacation rental tax enforcement in Costa Rica.  Is it fair?  Is the situation driving hoteliers out of business?

Next up, Corey and Dan Stevens from the Costa Rican Times rip out two segments talking about the “American Dream” as a national ethos.  Has it died or just moved south?  Should we be teaching our kids that the path to happiness is following this dream, or is it a perpetuated myth of exceptionalism and freedom?

Finally, Corey welcomes expat blogger and photographer Scott Alexander.  Scott is the owner of http://www.puravidafotos.com/ and writes regularly for The Costa Rica Star.  Corey and Scott talk about his recent article about the cost or living in Costa Rica and much more.
