BARRANTES AGUILAR, Julia Paola. Political behavior in free trade-protectionism tension: LAICA-La Maquila Lama dumping case. Rev. Rup. [online]. 2020, vol.10, n.1, pp.167-199. ISSN 2215-2989.

The objective is to analyze the political behavior of the Costa Rican sugar sector in the free trade-protectionist tension, in the case of dumping between LAICA and La Maquila Lama, through semi-structured interviews and media monitoring, a joint analysis of the case is carried out contemplating the categories of analysis: events, actors, scenarios, tactics and strategies. It is identified that the discussion between free trade and protectionism is imaginary; in the meantime, these two models are, in principle, theoretical models of economics. In practice, there is no fully deregulated market economy or any fully protected economy. For this reason, a conclusion for this study is that these two models coexist within the economic system and at different levels within the economies of the countries.
