Re: [OPE-L] (OPE-L) RE: 'simple commodity production'Rakesh,

the Economist Mag has slipped up a bit on Venezuela ...on Sept 1  it states  the PDVSA   

'has been weakened  by a power  struggle in 2002-03 between its  managers and the president'..

..this  is typical  of the English  bourgeoisie......happily, or sometimes with a certain hypocritical   'regretfulness',   admitting the truth  of the past,  only to concentrate on concealing or lying about the present.

Of course those who  insist it was a popular anti government   'strike'...have to feel    let down by  such admissions...but ...thats    the problem  with  happily  quoting the millionaires  editorials so uncritically.
