    Venezuela used to be one of the largest exporters of coffee in the world. But because of Chavez's gross mismanagement of the Venezuelan economy, Venezuela can't even produce enough to supply its own demand.

    They are also losing oil production, food supplies, and just about everything else. This is not going to change nicely.

    Is anyone really surprised, I mean other than Sean Penn and Danny Glover, that Chavez has cratered Venezuela's economy with his nationalizations and centralized planning?
