It's not really socialist mismanagement. It's just plain old mismanagement. Maduro didn't invest some of those oil profits back into keeping the oil flowing. It does little good having the world's greatest oil reserves if you can't get it out of the ground and into the tanker ships. I think spending a large chunk of the oil money on education, agriculture, health care, etc. is a great idea. Spending 100% of it on those things is mismanagement. He's killed the goose that laid the golden egg, so everybody could have roast goose.
