https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crisis_in_Venezuela


Quote:
The current situation is the worst economic crisis in Venezuela's history[7] and among the worst crises experienced in the Americas,[8][9] with hyperinflation, soaring hunger, disease, crime and death rates, and massive emigration from the country.[10] Observers and economists have stated that the crisis is not the result of a conflict or natural disaster but the consequences of populist policies that began under the Chávez administration's Bolivarian Revolution,[11][12][13][14][15][16]

The contraction of national and per capita GDPs in Venezuela between 2013 and 2017 was more severe than that of the United States during the Great Depression, or of Russia, Cuba, and Albania following the collapse of the Soviet Union.[22][23]

Quote:
According to the misery index in 2013, Venezuela ranked as the top spot globally with the highest misery index score.[2][3]
Only the dressing room at Old Trafford scored worse.

Quote:
Policies created by former President Hugo Chávez led to shortages that the country experienced when President Maduro entered into office.[2][3] These policies were continued by President Maduro which led to greater shortages of due to the Venezuelan government's policy of withholding United States dollars from importers with price controls.[106]

Economist Asdrubal Oliveros of the Venezuelan consulting firm Ecoanalítica and economist Francisco Rodriguez of the Bank of America Corporation, among other economists, believe that the chronic shortages in Venezuela resulted from multiple elements, like over-reliance on imports, lack of production, price controls, and other government policies.

President Maduro instead blames the CIA for Venezuela's shortages.[150][151][152]


Quote:
Fears grew high due to a toilet paper shortage that resulted in the Venezuelan government occupying a MANPA toilet paper factory to check operations for the alleged "possible diversion of distribution" and "illegal management"
Can’t even have a shit in peace. Surprised he didn’t call in Franny Lee to sort it.

Quote:
In mid-2014, Venezuela faced shortages of water. Caracas suffered the most shortages and rationing of water due to what critics said was bad planning by the Venezuelan government. In some instances, trucks of water that were being delivered to residents in the municipality of Petare were robbed at gunpoint. President Nicolas Maduro stated that the water shortages the country was facing were due to global warming and El Niño.[164]
He’s got so many excuses I reckon he posts on here.

Quote:
In 2013, President of the Venezuelan government's Instituto Nacional de Estadística (INE) Elias Eljuri suggested that all shortages in the country were due to Venezuelan's eating, saying that "95% of people eat three or more meals a day"
There you have it. Stop eating and they’ll have plenty of food.

As much as I disagree with Irk, at least he tries to build an argument to support his point of view. You, and your other two aliases, simply jump in with one word responses and a smiley thinking your so fucking clever. It's really pathetic .

Irk seems to think it has some relevance to the uk and labour under corbyn. Which instantly destroys his credibility.

It's not what he thinks, it's what he wants to justify his own behaviour...
