La primera década del gobierno de Hugo Chávez: Logros y desaciertos

Cuadernos del CENDES 01/2010; 27(74):27-50.

ABSTRACT Abstract A balance sheet of the 10 years of chavismo in power refutes both the opposition's demonization of it and its rosy depiction in the official media. The Venezuelan experience scores high on the social front and shows weakness with regard to the stimulation of production of consumer goods. While it has incorporated massive numbers of the formerly marginalized into the decision-making process, diversified technological and commercial ties, and asserted greater national control in the economic sphere, it has failed to substantially boost production in spite of a windfall in oil revenue and has moved very slowly toward institutionalization. Judged by liberal standards, Venezuelan democracy is deficient on a number of counts, but in terms of the standards associated with radical democracy it fares much better.
