following heavy spending in 2012 on homes for the poor and pensions for the elderly that helped Chavez win re-election.

But it would also push up consumer prices in a country that already has one of the highest inflation rates in the region.

A lack of dollars in recent weeks has left many businesses struggling to import the products they need. Some goods such as wheat flour and sugar have disappeared from supermarket shelves…

I was always confident that Hugo Chavez would “pull through”, since he was never ill to begin with.

So why does Hugo Chavez feign illness? Simple, when credible assassination threats are made known to Chavez, it’s easier to go underground than deal with the uncertain political climate one would encounter if one were to reveal such assassination threats.
