Venezuela embraces privatization? [TheJamesMadison]

"Saddled with hundreds of failed state companies in an economy barreling over a cliff, the Venezuelan government is abandoning socialist doctrine by offloading key enterprises to private investors, offering profit in exchange for a share of revenue or products," write Caracas-based journalists Fabiola Zerpa and Nicolle Yapur.

Well, that certainly sounds like a good movement, right?

What idiot would fall for it though? With Maduro still in charge of the Venezuelan government, and his cronies still implanted throughout the government, what idiot would think that purchasing state owned companies would be a good long term investment?

It's not about ideology, it's about corruption. The socialist regime in Venezuela is massively corrupt. Just buying the company probably involves more payoffs than the investment is worth, and even if you get the company to a place of success, what kind of guarantee could Maduro's government give you to satisfy you that they won't steal the company away again?

Venezuela's nightmare won't end until Maduro shares the same fate as every other dictator deserves, until the entire leadership of Venezuela's government is hanging from nooses by the hands of angry mobs. Only then will there be an opportunity to regrow trust, but it'll still probably be hell for a decade before anything stable begins to form, if it forms at all.

Socialism, kids. Not even once.

Also according to HotFart, there's good news afoot. Manchin is refusing to help confirm Neera Tanden, and now it looks like Joe's plans to give Iran a big fat furry hug are falling through as well.

9 Money quote in the article.

>Economic Fascism Is Not Capitalism . . . .

>At best, Venezuela's current economic system is a form of fascism, which Sheldon Richman once described as "socialism with a capitalist veneer."

I expect that is privatized to supporters and loyalists, more like a soviet style oligarchy.

16 I suspect that those backing the regime are starting to feel that it will collapse fairly soon, so they are transferring legal ownership of all property to the Cartels that are already running everything. they're the only ones with money.

Venezuela is lost, it's going to sink back into the jungle within a generation. There is no salvation for them.

Posted by: Tom Servo at February 19, 2021 06:38 PM (bxPTJ)

17 More important than all of the bribes you would have to pay, the idea of buying something from a regime that has already proven it will take them back from you via nationalization the next time it feels like it seems like the worst kind of foolish optimism.

Posted by: HTL at February 19, 2021 06:38 PM (DiB8m)

18 Yeah...that sort of investment sounds great until one considers that once the situation sucks slightly less Maduro and co. will just nationalize everything again.

Plus that same strategy would work if the dollar collapses, just repin your money on some other stable currency - Pound, Euro, whatever.

Perhaps. Chavez was a brutal, stupid, coke-dealing thug with a title, who leveraged Marxism and his military background to oppress his country. IOW, a very bad hombre.

But, let's not get it twisted. He's a benevolent statesman compared to the bastards we've got here.

A real criminal could hurt them.

Meanwhile, (I mentioned this a few days back) the Bay Area is equally screwed. An 84 year old Chinese guy was murdered for standing in his driveway - and probably looked at a passer-by prompting his death. KRON4 did an impromptu man on the street thing expecting to back up an SF supervisor that the streets are safe. That's not what they got. But the idiots will keep voting for the same shit.

This was so crazy the same supervisor said not to "start a witch hunt" for the perp. Seriously, WTF? Then, they tried to paint it as a hate crime, but not that sort of hate. It was Trump calling the virus Chinese that did it. Really? You think this guy watches fox news, do ya? BTW, they did finally get the perp in Oakland. Warning: Video is graphic.

He estimates that by then prior infection and vaccinations would will bring the US to herd immunity

Dr Makary noted that daily US infections have fallen more than 70% in 6 weeks

No, the 1930s. It's based on a real life person, Gareth Jones, who worked for the Brit foreign services and was a commie symp but couldn't figure out how their numbers added up. He was laid off in a cost cutting manner but uses a letter of recommendation form Lloyd George to forgery his way into the Soviet Union and Ukraine where he witnesses everything turned to shit. Walter Duranty takes a nearly infinite amount of pipe in the portrayal, literally and figuratively.
