For those unable to access the Real News interviews that I posted earlier
today, here's a shorter URL: http://tinyurl.com/zuvcrxf.

For some background to the economic situation in Venezuela that is behind
the election results, this article by Jorge Martin provides some relevant
facts, notwithstanding the rather simplistic conclusions ("expropriating the
capitalist class") characteristic of his political current.

For a sober and informative analysis of the over-arching dilemmas of
Chavismo's developmental policies, this article by Edgardo Lander, a
critical Chavista, is very useful: "Venezuela: terminal crisis of the
rentier petro-state?," http://tinyurl.com/zhk4r69.
