Venezuela: Exciting Things Are Happening

Exciting things are happening in Venezuela right now. They're always places in the world that are turning the corner. When you read the headlines you must learn to look beyond the headlines to see what's really happening.

They're smart enough to know that they've made many mistakes and they're starting to change. They now have removed exchange controls. Unbelievable for a country like Venezuela! They're starting to try to figure out, "Oh my gosh what do we do next?" That's when you buy. You find a country that's at the bottom when changes are starting to take place.
