How Chavismo Has Ripped Off The Private Sector Over The Years

by moctavio


There is an article today in the New York Times, which while factually correct, seems to me to be a little late to the game in explaining to its readers how Chavismo has "vanished" the profits (And equity too) of private companies whether they are Venezuelan or not.






Chavismo has never played by the rules, whether international or national.
