Here it is, your Venezuela update

One area where Maduro has been able to top Chavez is in producing inflation! Prices are rising at a 49.4% annual rate this year (the 2012 rate was 20%). So congrats to Maduro for this “win”.

Maduro was the picture of modesty though, giving credit to “speculators”.

With this kind of leadership and economic performance, it will be interesting to see how long Chavismo can last post-Chavez. When Mr. God-given Hair gets his turn will things stabilize or deteriorate even faster?
