Venezuela: towards sustained poverty reduction or economic meltdown?

Venezuela: towards sustained poverty reduction or economic meltdown?

PUBLIC DEBATE, followed by the showing of South of the Border, Oliver Stone’s documentary about the left-oriented political projects in Latin America.

28 April 2010 | Parkteateret, Oslo, Norway

A state policy of intervention has brought significant changes to the Venezuelan economy. While the news tells about devaluation, inflation and energy crisis, at the same time there are reports on impressing poverty reduction results. But can we count on the numbers, and is the poverty reduction sustainable in a more and more turbulent economic context? Some of the world's leading experts on the Venezuelan economy will be present at Parkteatret to debate these questions:

Mark Weisbrot, Co-director of Centre for Economic Policy Research, Washington D.C.

Roberto Rigobon, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Boston

Julia Buxton, Department of Peace Studies, Bradford University

Ricardo Villasmil, Andrés Bello Catholic University, Caracas

Moderators: Henrik Wiig (NIBR) and Benedicte Bull (NorLARNet/SUM, UiO).
