Can you imagine how desperate they were to take such a huge risk? Few people were so conscious of the coming destruction. Chavez tried to make PDVSA into his tool through four successive presidents in less that three years. None complied.

And do you think that the refineries are all stopped because of the sanctions? They are not working because they broke down due to incompetence and lack of maintenance. And, if oil could be produced and they worked, Iran would not be sending gasoline.

After firing the competent people, they hired about 80000 party members and turned the oil company into a piggy bank and a nest of corruption. No investment, no maintenance and forcing the remaining engineers to produce more than the fields allowed.

How could you believe those simplistic explanations? Oil is not being produced because Chavez fired 18000 of the fully trained oil personnel, from the top managers, engineers and PhDs to the workers that knew the oil fields like a mother knows her baby.

The Venezuelan tragedy: No oil to export, no refineries to refine it in, no fuel at the pumps... but plenty of oil, as pollution, running through the streets and in the sea coast. Some of the most beautiful and delicate ecosystems are being destroyed

Strange that older people should worry about debt when they know the biggest boom and the greatest welfare occurred after the huge debts of WWII. Worry about investing and shaping technology towards social and environmental wellbeing, That will pay the debt!

Understanding front line technologies is an essential task for all governments. Effective development policy today is technology policy. That is one thing democracies could copy from China.

How can you witness billionaires accumulate $10,000,000,000,000 in wealth during an economically catastrophic pandemic and not conclude that the system needs to fundamentally change?

The shortest imaginable summary of how, with each technological revolution, we go from increasing inequality to reversal and golden ages (a green one, in this case)... and very creatively illustrated.

The market inequality vs. income inequality argument is based on the fantastic work of Gabriel Palma (2020) “Behind the seven veils of inequality ”Development and Change” Vol. 50 No.5 pp. 1133–1213.
