Venezuela A Story of Riches to Rags

The four sessions will discuss the origin of Venezuela from Spanish settlement and genocide of natives to the rebellion by Simon Bolivar, which successfully defeated the Spanish and founded Greater Colombia; and later, the two separate countries of Colombia and Venezuela. The course will discuss the natural riches, the culture and the politics, which gradually transformed the country from an oil-rich capitalistic democracy to a thirdworld Socialist state run by a ruthless dictator.
