The Economist on Venezuela

Election you are.

The Economist basically comments on what we all saw...Hugo's bad health, his threats, his claims he would take Venezuela "irreversibly" to socialism.

What The Economist didn't seem to know: education has been free all the way to university level for many decades already. In fact: Chávez's parents - like mine - were teachers in public schools and his big brother went to university for free - many decades ago.
