Scarcity on the shelves

Chavez' policy of land distribution backfiring?

Watch this clip.

Note that one man interviewed stated that land was redistributed that was thought NOT to be cultivated, but actually WAS, causing scarcity in some items. Venezuela is having to import products now to help meet the basic needs of the citizenry.

Of course, land redistribution isn't the only cause, but it is an interesting side effect of the policy. Of course, no blame is put on the government. As with anything Chavez, the problem lies elsewhere: the distributors, the manufacturers, etc. Everyone is conspiring against Chavez and the chavistas, at least that what El Burro wants you to think.
