Corruption in Venezuela

The Miami Herald publishes a study from Gustavo Coronel that is worth reading and passing around. One wonders how come corruption is not more in the agenda or Rosales. Perhaps it would be too vindictive and scare away the more modestly corrupt chavista public "servant" that might steal because, well, it is so easy to do... But it seems to be paying off: his language has contrasted so nicely with the violence and hatred of Chavez speech that it is in part the reason why Rosales has been climbing steadily. And after all, there will be always time to address corruption if Rosales reaches office.

PS: I have corrected the AOI post. Including the missing graph. It seems a good time to point to AIO post as the failures of Chavez are probably as much coming from his incompetence as well as from his unwillingness to tackle corruption as he uses it to secure his power.

Comments policy:

1) Comments are moderated after the third day of publication. It may take up to a day or two for your note to appear then.

2) Your post will appear if you follow the following rules. I will be ruthless in erasing any comment that do not follow these rules, as well as those who replied to that off rule comment.

3)COMMENT RULES:
Do not be repetitive.
Do not bring grudges and fights from other blogs here (this is the strictest rule).
This is an anti Chavez blog, with more than 95% anti Chavez readers that have made up their minds long ago. Thus trying to prove us wrong is considered a troll. Still, you are welcome as a chavista to post,> in particular if you want to explain us coherently as to why chavismo does this or that. We are still waiting for that to happen once.
Insults and put downs are frowned upon and I will be sole judge on whether to publish them.
