Chavez’ new plan to get rid of poverty

July 5, 2003

While nobody seems to have noticed the Chavez administration has embarked in a new plan to eliminate poverty in Venezuela. It is a very simple plan: Stop the National Institute for Statistics from releasing the numbers of how many poor Venezuelans there are and how the number has done nothing but increase in the five years of the Chavez administration. Indeed, as reported today in El Universal, Emiro Molina was replaced as the Head of the National Institute for Statistics for releasing such numbers. He was replaced by the former head of Customs at the Internal Revenue Office, which means we should probably not believe any of the numbers from that office on tax collection in 2003
