Gives a description of Nicaragua's classic colonial economy to explain the Sandinistas' attempts to reduce dependence. One major concern was to increase food production to contribute to the social strategy through agrarian reform. What has been done has changed the social and geographical face of the country, and there has been a reduction in the gap between urban and rural living standards. -D.G.Price
