The proposed Nicaraguan Grand Canal mega-project—whether promised land or pipe dream—serves as the basis for the following short case study in political and economic culture. It can be useful for multiple fields such as business, policy, foreign affairs, public relations, logistics, tourism, intercultural communication studies, business communications, and the emerging field of language for specific purposes. Neither a research nor a theoretical contribution per se, it is intended to serve as a theory-based pedagogical piece for developing critical thinking, problem-solving, and presentational skills, illustrative of the didactic genre, in a way that is applicable to multiple fields.
