A few articles back we have an account from Forbes Magazine of the expropriations of power plants by Communists in Bolivia. I was tempted to add a reply which said that if Eva Morales had patience he could simply wait for international Cap and Trade treaties to do the expropriation for him. I had forgotten that in America we can also do it by way of financial "reform" legislation.
