KPFA’s Dennis Bernstein interviews Steve Ellner

The Venezuelan economy is being crippled by the sanctions the US, Canada, European Union  have imposed on it. Sanctions impose heavy burdens on ordinary Venezuelans who are just trying to live their lives. Unilateral sanctions are illegal under international law.

Steve Ellner, professor in Venezuela, author of many books and articles on Chavista Venezuela, will discuss the impact of these sanctions and the impact of other factors (such as the drop in the price of oil, the reliance on oil exports, economic sabotage by the right-wing, mismanagement) on the Venezuelan people’s lives.
