"The country has entered a new and more dangerous phase, a clear erosion of some of the most precious historical advantages of human development."
Synopsis of the Seventeenth Report of the Nation on Sustainable Human Development:
When examined closely, 2010, a year without dramatic events, seemingly calm, reveals the seriousness of the problems experienced by human development in Costa Rica. At first glance it was a year marked by economic, social and political normality: the economy grew moderately, albeit with significant deficits, there was no large-scale social conflicts, increased social investment and also citizens elected a national government and local authorities in two free and fair elections, without incidents or concerns about the results. Even with a deteriorating public security situation, strongly influenced by the regional geopolitics of drugs, the country remains the safest in Central America and attracts a considerable flow of foreign direct investment. Furthermore, it overcame the economic crisis of 2008-2009 without serious setbacks.
The Universidad de San Carlos de Guatemala (USAC, University of San Carlos of Guatemala) was one of the earliest universities to be founded in the Americas. It was decreed a university on January 31, 1676 by royal command of King Charles II of Spain. It had previously been known as the Escuela de Santo Tomás (School of Saint Thomas), founded in 1562 by the priest Francisco Marroquín. The University finally gained international acceptance by Official Decree from Pope Innocent XI, on June 18, 1687.
