    That is the main premise. I agree. They don't, and what gets most economies in trouble. Especially one's like Chavez's that so many progressives in this country seem to hail.

    We see the failures continue despite History's teachings of the past.

    Failure is failure. You cannot improve upon it no matter how hard some in THIS government seem to think that you can.

    How many more times must human kind be booted in the ass before they get it?

    I find economics so bizarre sometimes, it seems nothing works forever. Change, diversity, and pluralism are the essential pieces of a working economy. But Chavez may be the socialist Bush Jr? Another incompetent who can't see sticking to rigid formula doesn't work.


    "Perhaps the most evident effect oil has had on Venezuela&#8217;s economy is the appearance of the &#8220;Dutch Disease.&#8221; This economic disease is caught whenever a commodity brings a sudden increase of income in one sector of the economy, which is not matched by increased income in other sectors of the economy."
