Helping the (First) World Poor

Once upon a time there was a state-owned Venezuelan oil company, which decided to supply oil - well under market price - as a heating assistance to the poor US residents. ”The launch of the discounted heating oil program is meant to coincide with the Thanksgiving holiday and will benefit communities in poor communities of Boston, Massachusetts and of the Bronx, New York,” writes Global Exchange. And it is not only about helping the poor but also a nice victory for President Chavez in the media war between predatory capitalism and its contestants.
