I need a beer I like that so I guess there will be more smart Venezuelans soon. And he is going to ask Brazil to fix the problem that he has with the electricity? is he nuts if the problem is not enough water going down the Caroni are they going to get a bunch of Brazilians to bring buckets in and fill the river up so he gets more power? LOL what he needs is maintenance and a plan to make more power plants but that would be to much for him to think about he rather have others do it for him and not pay them for there work. he does not understand to little to late he will need all the help he can get since no one in his cabinet is capable of a rational thought he needs to get outside help and he will not take the solution because he can use that money to buy votes and keep his friends happy.

Just maintainence of existing electric inftrastructure would have solved this problem.

IF, all facilities were operating, as they should at 70-75% of capacity (25-40% functional reserve), this would not have occurred. Most plants are operating at or near FULL oprational capacity, with 20-60% of DESIGN CAPACITY (FULL) non-operational due to no or poor maintainence.

Now, look at the water, the roads, the buildings, the bridges, the ports, the farms, the police, the hospitals, the press, etc.

The picture is bleek, but this is 21st century socialism in action!

Not only poor maintenance, also a bad grid: a net full of gapes!!!
For eg. the thermo-electric power plant Josefa Camejo in Falcon State, that's a relatively new plant made under Chavez administration, operates at 20% of his capacity because it isn't connected to general grid, thus producing only for the local area!
