Venezuela is in an economic and political crisis. Food shortages, rolling electricity blackouts and a crumbling healthcare system have triggered an exodus of millions out of the country and led political opponents, led by Venezuelan Parliament leader Juan Guaido, to seek the ouster of President Nicolas Maduro. Join Active Minds as we explore how this once promising economy and evolving democracy has wound up in shambles. We will look at how the price of oil, the policies of the late President Hugo Chavez, and other factors converged to create this crisis and explore what the future holds for this important South American country.
