Are the poor better off than they were under AD?

Here is a fascinating article forwarded to me by The Source regarding Venezuela, and how the poor are actually WORSE off under Chavez than they were under the leadership of former President Carlos Andres Perez.

Note the author is a former member of Chavez' government and was kicked out for highlighting that Chavez wasn't living up to his promises. He is an economist by trade, and his statistics cut to the bare-bones of the matter. Nothing like good solid numbers to cut through the rhetoric and tell the real story of what's actually going on in Venezuela.
