Well, not really but I got your attention, maybe.
In his OpEd today Paul Krugman bemoans justifiably that the current recession in the US coupled with years of silly anti government rhetoric from the right will have terrible consequences for the future of the US as roads and infrastructure start crumbling while no one accepts any increase in taxes, even local.
The intelligent left tends to admire the work of Krugman and I wonder if some of those who include chavista sycophants make the connection with what is happening in Venezuela today. During the last 11 years chavismo has invested little in infrastructure considering the flow of money it received during the oil boom that ended in 2008. As for maintenance of infrastructure, the investment is less, if possible. Only when a bridge falls or something like that, does the government comes with a big production to try to make the people forget years of neglect.
In my very humble opinion what Krugman write has already happened in Venezuela. We need to rebuild the country, we are past the repair only point. Just drive between San Felipe and Caracas to convince yourself.
