So the Saudi's driving down the price of oil from $110 a barrel to $28 barrel crippled Venezuela's economy. Imagine what would happen if the far left in the United States had their way and eliminated fossil fuel altogether. I guess the message I take away from this article is If you care about Venezuela, Vote Trump in 2016

On the other side, you had the Venezuelan "federal reserve" printing endless fiat money as the oil wealth dried up and the jobs disappeared. Now they have mortgaged their oil supply and cant pay back their IMF loans, so they will have to sell off land / resources to foreign companies.
