The Economist evaluates Venezuela

Two major articles from the Economist paint a pretty realist, and thus grim, picture of Venezuela. A must read.
The wrecking of Venezuela.
Feeling the heat (with historical perspective included).

    Gracias Daniel,

    The comments section of both articles seems to indicate that the PSF and the apologists are a) not getting paid b) not bothered anymore. That is somewhat comforting.


  2. Daniel: These are the kind of articles we've been waiting for in the western media for a long time. It seems that the Economist is something of a trailblazer that others may follow. Maybe the BBC, Associated Press and others will need to rotate out their correspondants for that to happen. Send Will Grant to North Korea, and bring in some new blood!


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.

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.
