Noam Chomsky: “Leftist Latin American Governments have Failed to Build Sustainable Economies”

“NOAM CHOMSKY: Venezuela is really a disaster situation. The economy relies on oil to … a greater extent than ever in the past, certainly very high. And the corruption, the robbery and so on, has been extreme, … especially after Chávez’s death. So, … if you look at, say, the U.N. Human Development Index, Venezuela still ranks, say, above Brazil. … there are hopes and possibilities for reconstruction and development. But the promise of the earlier years has been significantly lost.”
