In episode ten of “Global,” our hosts learn about the Western Hemisphere’s newest dictatorship: Venezuela. Consistently the subject of international headlines, Venezuela is facing not only an economic crisis but a political one as well. What is the current situation in Venezuela? How has the most resource-rich country in South America suffered an economic collapse? What role does the government play in the current situation?


In this episode of Global, we hear from Venezuela experts including Dr. Ricardo Hausmann of Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, Alexandra Ulmer of Reuters, and Miriam Kornblith of the National Endowment for Democracy.
