Venezuela Economy Close to Collapse
The Cubans have trained Venezuela’s president Maduro very well. Maduro owns the Venezuelan supreme court, so there is no appeal to law. Shelves are empty. Businesses close for the smallest of reasons. Political opposition leaders are murdered.
You run a small business and your employees need toilet paper in the bathroom. There is no toilet paper because TP is low on the states list of priorities. The business owner buys TP.. and gets arrested for hording.
Electricity is only available a few hours a day, so refrigerated food is rotting away. Food and medicine are almost non-existent.
This is Socialism in real life.
