Venezuela’s Democratic Socialist President: Our Economic Model Has ‘Failed’

Venezuela President Nicolas Maduro admitted on Tuesday that the economic models of his democratic socialist regime have “failed.”

“The production models we’ve tried so far have failed and the responsibility is ours, mine and yours,” Maduro told his United Socialist Party-controlled congress, AFPreports.

“Enough with the whining,” he said later, AFP reports. “We need to produce with or without (outside) aggression, with or without blockades, we need to make Venezuela an economic power. … No more whining, I want solutions comrades!”
