Good for Bolivia!
Apparently Bolivia has caught on to something. I wonder when we will.
Good, a nation that is starting to get rid of corruption. Hope their future is prosperous and hopefully other nations, even my own, become free from such thing
Morales dismisses a lot of things. He even told Bill Gates to pound sand when he offered a bunch of chickens and equipment to set some people up as chicken farmers in Bolivia. The offer was treated as more of an insult. Besides, in Bolivia the government owns everything. There are a lot of subsistence farmers but 91 percent of the country's agricultural land is tied up in just 4 percent of the farms. Government owns the 91%. Oh, and did I mention one of their mainstay crops is coca - no, not chocolate - coca, the raw ingredient of cocaine.
I don't know about Rothschild banks or the impact this has - I'm just saying Morales and Bolivia are infected pimples on the ass of the Earth.
You really do not understand what has been happening in Bolivia. Yes, the state has partially nationalized some things, but that has been to the benefit of the people. Whenever the UN/World Bank/IMF or any other "benevolent" states, agencies or individuals like Gates extend "humanitarian" aid, there are always strings attached. Those strings largely take the form of privatizing all natural resources and utilities. That sounds real good to us as capitalists, but the reality is that those resources are not privatized by the citizens or companies of that nation, but by transnational corporations. Effectively, the very resources that would allow a poor country to repay a loan are taken away from the country and given to the transnationals, which only serves to impoverish the people further.
Take the requirement that they privatize their water several years ago. Bechtel then charged the people as much as 1/4th of their income for water...including rain water. Yep, Bechtel claimed ownership of the rain, too.
You may think Evo "an infected pimple on the ass of the earth", but he has done far more for the citizens of his country than the US-led UN with their so-called humanitarian help.
Partially nationalized some things?
The government owns agriculture - and natural resource production. The economy is increasingly stagnant because of government interference.
Yes, partially owned, as you would know had you read the linked article. You would also see that under Evo the poorest are free to become entrepreneurs rather than having their houses taken from them to pay transnationals for rainwater.
91% Government ownership of agricultural land is a bit too far to be considered 'partial ownership' in my book.
Not sure where you're getting that figure from, but it is incorrect.
OK Cezar - now you want to defend coca production? Are you kidding me?
The few shreds of credibility you had are now lost.
