His people love him because he created a better society for them and gave his nation true independence from the influence of other nations. Neo Conservatives all hate him because he stopped US businesses from exploiting his country, because he made US troops leave, and because he would not accept US foreign aid. Instead of addressing these issues, neo-cons resort to name-calling and use words like "tyrant" or "dictator". They kill any intelligent discourse on the subject, relying on passion over reason. So he will probably be remembered as a controversial figure in the US, while being admired by the rest of the world.
His people Loved him ??? He was despised by his people who fled his country in droves under his regime. http://www.miamiherald.com/2013/03/05/3 … react.html
Old Empresario, I agree with you. I feel that people , as always, see things from their own perspective. Chavez was a very charismatic leader, one that provided free health care and educational programs for the majority of the population.
He had to do a lot for the poor. He created minions of them. I am sure they loved having to cross the border into columbia to buy bread and milk because they couldn't get it in Venezuela.
Some of us may remember him as a loud mouth tyrant but to some Americans he will be remembered as the man who got his country to donates free heating oil when they were in need and other companies and turned their back while the raking in major profits...
(By the way I hope we all noted the financial report that corporations have had another more successful year in profits than ever before.) Those poor rich people are really suffering after all getting richer in a shot economy must be very stressful! And the republicans fighting for them with all their might must really warm their heart!)
It’s just strange who we call tyrants in this country since the planet thinks we have plenty of our own.
Venezuela donates free heating oil to 100,000 needy US households

Mussolini gave away quite a bit to the poor as well, and Hitler did quite a bit to rebuild germany's infrastructure. I fail to see the connections with corp profits. Pharma companies give away free drugs to the indigent every year. Whats the point
Some of the largest US oil companies were asked if they were interested in helping the poor heat their homes, they were not... that is the point!

What are you talking about. Companies like Exxon give away HUGE amounts of money in philanthropic aid every year.They donate money for everything from education aid to malaria research. Not to mention all the wealth they create along the supply chain
All that giving away, also gives US companies huge tax breaks. Why is it a problem for you that I mention that profits keep increasing? In fact why not explain why profits keep increasing when the economy is supposedly in such a slump?
I think profits are great. I don't want business to do poorly. Profits are increasing while the economy stagnates because we are moving the tax code and regulation away from incentivizing capital formation, So Cap Ex spending is still weak.
Now that was a bit Greek to me.... but have you though of doing a hub for Dummies about the subject?
There are no dummies. It simply means that why would I spend money on investing in a new venture that requires risk when the tax bite or regulatory burden is so high. It makes more economic sense to sit on cash in many cases. Hence less job creation
I do get that part and I know our biggest problem is people are holding on to their money when we actually need them to spend. . But why are corporate profits soaring anyways?
Because companies have deleveraged as part of raising cash and are doing more with less. Unfortunately that is hard on the middle income worker because more is asked of them for the same $. The lack of hiring means they pick up the workload.
I actually made a forum post about this subject! would love to hear your input there.
I have never used the forum. If you send me a link I will be glad to participate.
One can agree or disagree with Chavez' priorities and political philosophy. What is hard to dispute is that Venezuela, like many Latin American nations, went through a long period during which political power was disconnected from popular consent. Chavez, whatever his flaws, seemed to have popular support in his country.
A look at history would remind us that, far from being a friend of democracy or free markets in Latin America, the U.S. has often propped up dictators, financed coups, and encouraged crony capitalism. The people of that region have not forgotten. That is a major reason why, in spite of all of Chavez' many errors, his nationalism and his populism kept him in power for so long.
When a leader like that dies, then it is fascinating to observe the reactions from people. Unlike other leaders, he talked like people talk and he was good at it! The comments that people make about Chavez, only proves his strong and charismatic personality.
