This time it will work

“Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro says he plans to extend price controls to all consumer goods, if he is given powers to govern by decree.”

Yes, no doubt that will work. Soon there will be plenty for all in Venezuela. I mean, it never has worked before in human history, but this time for sure.

“His announcement followed the seizure on Saturday of shops accused of selling electronic goods at inflated prices.”

I guess he just loves the poor. That must be why his policies are set to impoverish people.

In totally unrelated news, the US is now the world’s top oil producer.
