SD Public radio today carried a story on the economic crisis in Venezuela which is apparently a product of poor government and crashing oil prices. Huffington Post has a story and you can find many more. Not a good situation at all.
What was interesting about this today on public radio was that it provided two examples of the bad consequences of the economic collapse. 1. Government offices are only open for two days a week, and 2. Schools are closed on Friday.
Winner SD closes school of Friday as well. The difference is that Winner has no good excuse for their closure. Venezuela has little choice.
