Or something to that effect.
So, it’s not really used for trading so much as tax purposes.

For 10 years now right-wing nuts, supply-side economists and other assorted idiots-in-suits have been predicting the demise of Venezuela. Any of these guys checked Chavez approval ratings compared to those of any US politician? Or when is the last time any of these guys actually went to Venezuela?

I agree you can debate Chavez policies, and he’s been no silver bullet for Venezuela, but this type of scare-mongering headlines are simply wrong, and anyone who believes the capitalism-at-all-costs is the best approach for Latin America has probably never spent any real time or effort here understaning LatAm.
