Abstract: Abstract For several decades, Nicaragua lagged far behind most of the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) in terms of economic and social development. It suffered significant setbacks in the 1980s as a consequence of the armed conflict and the suspension of commercial and financial relations with the United States and the main international financial institutions (IFIs). From 1985 to 1989, per capita income dropped 7.4 per cent annually in a context of hyperinflation. This situation turned around markedly in the early 1990s once the peacemaking process was underway and commercial and financial relations resumed.
