Contemporary global issues
In the country of Venezuela, the government has taken a tighter control on the media as more and more government embarrassments have taken place in the last couple of months.
The cause for all this control is over the fact the people of Venezuela have dealt with a lot of issues which they have blamed on the government. Some these issues include that Venezuela has the worlds highest inflation rate with 180%, the price of oil they export has dropped from $88 to $45, inflation has skyrocketed due to scarce resources, and the national assembly is at odds with the current president.
There are some ways to fix some of these problems listed above. First, the country could put a tax on the oil they export or raise the price of oil for the people buying it.this means income with increase going back to the economy. Next they can figure out how to solve their inflation. Having the worlds highest inflation is the main reason the country is in so much trouble. And finally the need to get rid of the current president and fix the government into better shape by revamping the inner infrastructure of the goverment.
This conflict going on has some similarities with the Zimbabwe protest with the same economic shortfalls like low wages and the economy failing, as well as hunger with both Venezuela and Zimbabwe having low resources leading to hunger.
