Mismanage oil, mismanage water

(via DL) Venezuela gets about 40 inches (1 m) of rain per year, but President Chavez has outlawed low-efficiency appliances and asked people to take 3 minute showers to address their water shortages.

My take on this: His "Bolivarian revolution fascism" has lead to the same mismanagement of water that they are seeing with oil [$].

Who suffers? The poor that Chavez pretends* to care about.

Bottom Line: Governments that promise to "help the poor" by robbing the rich help neither.
* Even if he really does care, his ideology prohibits him from working with the people -- capitalists -- who can deliver. Too bad.

  1. D'accord.
    It seems that he cares, in an ego centric way, but that his ideology, in that same ego centric way, prevents any viable solution.
