    Hey! Venezuelan here. This made me cry for multiple reasons: 1.- The fact that someone is actually factually reporting on what happens to us and in some ways, this has been more through-rough than a lot of journalist.
    2.- Because it reminded me of exactly how bad this is, with no end on sight. :(

    Just to fact-check/expand on context: Venezuela did have a real, albeit imperfect democratic system from 58-98... The year we elected that asshole Hugo Chávez. And to be fair, plenty of people-both local and immigrants- profited: there was more social mobility and the opportunity to study, get good jobs, make a living, take care of your family, etc. Venezuela was much like the US, a migration magnet.

    And food scarcity started in 2007: milk was one of the first things to go. The thing is that because of the high oil prices is like they could keep cooking in spite of a gas leak, but eventually you rub out of gas.

    The thing about controlling of the 1 resource=control of the population is true. Is like how abusive partners will try to prevent their victims from having their own money or take away any income they generate so as to keep them subdued.

    The Venezuelan government is responsible for people not finding food, but they will SELL you boxes of government selected food for you. So, also Maslow’s pyramid: you keep people from being able to protest because they’re relying on that food box you sell them. And government officials are the ones who import that food and make money off of it.

      Another Venezuelan here... I just love how in other social media spots these kinds of statements spark a shit ton of "debate" between regime supporters and disidents that pretty much just start to insult each other. But here is a different story; it's an american channel where they speak in english for a english speaking community, which happens to attract some venezuelans (and other latin american bros too); so since we're speaking in a different language, pretty much all you get in the comment section is disidents of the dictatorship because their supporters (the few they still have) are drowning in poverty, ignorance and crime; chavistas are basically too ignorant to come here and defend it's regime because they can't even speak their own language correctly (you wouldn't want to see their grammar when they write stuff on facebook and twitter)

                                              I'm disappointed. This was the least thought out thing I've ever seen from you, how do you create a theory about how an economy works that's cut off from the rest of the world and self sustained. How do you create a theory about a fictional economy in a movie without seeing the movie first. They don't import goods so why is it necessary to take anything said into consideration. You kept saying "in the real world" like the suspension of disbelief regarding their economy was so imperative but then acknowledge the fact they have above average education systems and a happy population; and I just can't wrap my head around how it's so hard to believe a country populated by intelligent happy people with the resources to sustain themselves as well as a wealth of an all purpose foreign to the planet resource and futuristic hospitals can manage to figure out how to function solitarily. The point at the end was to not let obsolete ways of thinking passed down alienate you, it's a critique on society not Saudi Arabian economics so this ah ha moment at the end after you finally saw it was just confirmation bias at work cause there's no way in north america that you watched that movie and intelligently came to the conclusion that was economy on the brink of collapse without external help. At the very least you should have heard when they said they make weapons and clothes from vibranium that's weapons and textiles (two different industries) and to think we're just going to recreate something on earth made of space metals strong enough to stop the attack of a god it's just unrealistic and even if they could they don't sell vibranium so there no longer being a market for vibranium due to an alternative doesn't lose them any money or anything. Do better

                                              But your forgetting that they were isolated and therefore have a self sustaining country and it doesn’t matter weather they have an economy or not they have vibranium

                                                          Your wrong n this one.
                                                          You can't compare Vibranium to oil or any real resource.

                                                          Vibranium is more like a replicator,Dilithium crystal and teleporter from Startrek combined.

                                                          All wakanad's energy problems are solved with Vibranium.Wakanada Appears to be entirely self sufficient and has no need for the outside world.

                                                          Wakanadas finally opened its borders but that was to to help others not because Wakanda needed any type of trade with the world.

                                                          Wakandas technology appears to make them an autonomous economy where there's enough for everyone and the cost to produce goods is non existence or extremely minimal.

                                                          I would even argue Wakanda has a YouTube economy where as most if the people creating things due it because they enjoy what they do.And the basic nessesities are assured by a higher authority.

                                                          With Vibranium wakanada produces everything they need cheaply and in abundance.Food ,Clean water and shelter are not a concern for Wakandans.They don't have limitations on these products as we due in reality since they seem to have a virtually unlimited power source.
