It wasn't the price controls, the nationalization of industry and subsequent poor management of those state-owned businesses. It wasn't the huge amounts of money given to the poor, and out of control spending. No, no, it was just currency mismanagement.
Does Venezuela’s Crisis Prove Socialism Doesn’t Work?
No, no, we just need another hundred examples. Next time, we'll do it right! Even though the public sector can't run a hot dog stand without losing money. Even while this clown of a writer is sitting in his apartment, without electricity, he's still hooked on socialism. These journalists are hooked on socialism like it's heroin or something. Apparently starving to death, isn't the bottom yet. The amazing thing to me, is that 30% of the people in Venezuela still support Maduro. That means that you can kill off your own population with a failed state, and 30% of them will still think you're OK. Which also explains Obama's approval ratings.
