  •  GINI Figures May Be Imprecise. (2+ / 0-)

    I don't know for sure, but I don't think the GINI figures include the free and low cost services provided by Venezuela to its citizens.  If you could quantify the value of free medical care available around the corner, free education to the post-doc level, with stipends to the students for attending, low cost markets and restaurants, very well funded sports programs and excellent, free music lessons, as well as low or no-interest loans for building or repairing buildings and starting new businesses or cooperatives, etc.  Venezuela's GINI co-efficient might be considerably lower.

    Convict Bush, Cheney and their torture cabal. Support universal health care,unions, WikiLeaks and Occupy Wall Street! Time for a totally new, democratic economic system. Turn the corporations into worker cooperatives!
