How do you expropriate a retailer? You can close their doors and piss off their customers, but there is no way to keep the thing going because you can't fill the shelves.
This whole thing should end badly for Chavez and my prediction at the beginning of the year stands, by the end of the year he's either dead or gone from the country.

I always think ‘nationalizes’ should be in quotes. You can call your theft what you like, but you’re still nothing but a common thief.

Considering the actions of our current President, Americans need to STFU when it comes to Chavez Nazi actions.

Chavez knows he is an idiot. He just cut the value of their money in half, of course prices have to adjust. They are going to end up with nothing but Hugo-Marts and what they sell will be unpredictable, like everything else Hugo touches.
I hope France slaps sanctions on Venezuela.

Chavez’s end will come quickly during the night. The country will celebrate. Hollywood will cry.

Exito should have went Francisco d’Anconia a long time ago. Too late now.
French socialism meet Venezuela socialism.

Venezuela is a big importer. Either prices go up or the shelves are empty. Which does he prefer?

Over on DUmmie Underground almost every post on this topic is “Viva Chavez” and “Way to go Hugo” It just boggles the mind how people can go through life so economically illiterate as to actually believe the government can provide something “For Free” and that the only thing standing in the way of an endless supply of free stuff is those evil corporations and their profit motive.

All the corporations who suffer from nationalization of their investments in Venezuela should come to invest in Honduras. Their investments are safe here.
