    @Frank passed this video along to me and I had to share it. In the video the topic of discussion is Venezuela, Columbia, and the USA. Are things really not as the media portrays them? Are we really the country that has the socialism problem? Is Venezuela really on the mend?

    Is there a way to get a transcript off a video on YouTube? That sure would be helpful.

    He describes the ties to the US dollar and how it has been decoupled from the world markets. He also talks about the few stories coming out of Venezuela showing starving people and says that they are a vast minority, and that this is all propaganda against a country trying to get away from the global banking cabal.

    There might be some truth in that.

    Unless the video maker provides a text transcript, I know of no way to get a useful document.
    I suppose a voice to text transcription tool could be used, but they are not very reliable and I don't have one on my system.

    RE Venezuela... While I would agree that the government may be trying to break ties to the world banks system (I can't fault that...), I think many are indeed starving. Mostly on the low end of the totem pole, but that includes a big part of the population right now.

    They have extreme inflation, on a par with Wiemar Germany. They government is not accepting food aid from other countries. There is an exodus of people to neighboring countries.

    On the other side of the coin, it is difficult to get reports out of the country because reporters from outside are persona-non-grata. Our own news reporting businesses are looking for ways to spin this story to fit the politics of the day... Very hard to know what to believe...

    The word is that it is "oil backed". But they need to actually pump and be able to deliver that oil.
    In that sense, it is "poorly conceived" because all they offered was promise to pump and deliver on demand.

    The world banks will want something to back any investment, either in this new "crypto" or in loans to Venezuela. I suspect (IMO) that the banks don't see any profit in pouring money down that particular rat hole.

    I suspect, again an opinion, that TPTB are waiting for Venezuela's government to collapse. They they will then go in and pick up the pieces... Let's hope that Meduro and his troops don't burn that bridge behind them.

    Yet, oddly enough, there is nothing backing bitcoin ands everyone rejoices.

    Bitcoin is also hurting, right now. They have many competitors and it is very uncertain where any of them will go. Gamblers are their biggest clients.

    Venezuela's government is simply untrustworthy. Whatever they touch becomes tainted and investors move away. Look for the vultures circling the country, waiting for a meal.
