Can you explain hyperinflation in Venezuela or the Weimar Republic by a lack of potential within…
Keith Evans

Just chiming with a reminder here that Venezuela is rife with corruption .. enough corruption to bring the country down. The government run oil industry there is as dirty and incompetent as it gets.

As for Greece, we can thank our friends at Goldman Sachs for the fleecing of Greece with AAA notes comprised of subprime mortgages.

I completely agree with everything here but did want to interject that these economies were heavily manipulated in various ways that helped in their demise.
