Nothing says “sound leader” more than conducting a press conference in a track suit. Just ask Al Sharpton.
This about sums it up. Viva Libertad! Viva Venezuela!
2 very very rich socialists. (Actually 3. That’s Maduro on the right.)
Venezuela should be a rich – or at least a relatively rich country. But 2 decades of socialism have eroded the economy. Now, as the regime clings to power it’s running over protesters. We shouldn’t be surprised but we should be aware.
The people will most likely bring Maduro and his Chavista allies down. But there may be be blood, more blood, on the way to this result.
Viva la gente. Viva Venezuela. Viva libertad. Viva una dia nueva!
Immigrants, at least in my experience, are often, not always, but often, people who want to work and who understand markets. Or come to understand them out of necessity.
Socialists hate people who understand markets.
Socialism can not calculate prices effectively. This is socialism’s (of various kinds) fatal flaw.
Real prices, honest prices, often reflect a reality that the powers that be in socialist systems don’t like. As such the powers that be start looking for reasons, any reasons other than the real ones, for why their particular economy is failing. They often conjure boogeymen.
You see it’s reactionary capitalists undermining the system. They are trying to extract the people’s surplus value.
This ought to solve the problem.
The whole place is economically dysfunctional. This is what happens when prices are restricted by the government and the totalitarians refuse to let in the light of the market. It’s really that simple fundamentally.
It should be noted also that the Indian government pulled a similar thing a couple of weeks ago and also threw its economy into a spin.
The War on Cash is on.
When the army is distributing medical supplies in a country it’s pretty safe to say that things are not going well. Venezuela is a tragedy.
Hyperinflation, it happens.
Socialism is truly a wonderful thing. So fair.
