Venezuela in Crisis

  • May 1, 2017

As President Nicolás Maduro relies on increasingly repressive means to preserve the regime he inherited from the late Hugo Chávez, Venezuela has descended into an existential economic, social, and political crisis. In this edition of FPRI Radio, host Ronald Granieri is joined in conversation with FPRI Senior Fellow Vanessa Neumann to discuss the roots of Venezuela’s problems, how its people and neighbors are reacting to this ongoing crisis, and the future of what was once the most prosperous state in South America.
