Season 2, Episode 34 - PF January 2020: “The United States should end its economic sanctions against Venezuela” - A Conversation with Analicia Vaamonde-Stolz

December 13, 2019

Josh interviews Analicia, a Venezuelan lawyer now working in Washington D.C. For 25 years, Analicia lived in Venezuela. She describes growing up during the Chavez years, the route to Venezuela's current crisis, the results of socialism, and how Venezuela has come to have two governments (Maduro, and Guaido). Analicia provides three solid arguments for the negative; she thinks the sanctions are a sound policy tool. This is a great episode for context on the Venezuelan crisis - let us know if it's helpful!
