Riassunto analitico
Venezuela is currently experiencing the worst of its crises. Food and medicines shortages, the highest levels of inflation, insufficient purchasing power derived from a devalued currency, a situation of collective panic that emerges from the high rates of violence and, a political and institutional delegitimization, are some of the elements that make up the current reality of the country.<br>Through a historical study that focuses on the presidency of Hugo Chávez as a turning point, we have managed to identify how elements that go back to the beginnings of the creation of Venezuela (first as a colony and later as an independent Republic) have generated dysfunctional characteristics that have survived to this day and, how this elements, together with the policies emanated by the project of Socialism of the XXI Century, created the conditions for the collapse of the country with the largest oil reserves in the world.<br>
