Zimbabwe went broke by seizing assets from white farmers. Venezuela is about to go broke by seizing drilling platforms from international companies. Zimbabwe agricultural production declined 80%; Venezuela oil production declined sharply, they are about to import 200,000 barrels of oil from Russia to be able to meet their OPEC quota. Nobody wants to lend money to be used in seized Zimbabwe lands, because of legal and political uncertainty. Almost nobody lends money to Venezuela PDVSA, agan, bacause of legal and political uncertainty. In short, seizing from the rich to provide the poor, only causes more povery on the long run.
