Maduro Looking For The Exits

by Darrick Johnson Read Profile arrow_right_alt

Bloomberg is reporting that Nicolas Maduro has commissioned his “advance” staff to find a nice retirement villa with favorable extradition status.

Venezuela’s economy has finally, in the words of Margaret Thatcher, “run out of other people’s money.” More and more countries, including the United States, have now recognized opposition leader Juan Guaido as the country’s rightful President. Maduro’s position is increasingly untenable, and he might be more worried about avoiding a Ceaucescu-like ending rather than any domestic policy concerns.

Potential safe havens for Maduro include Cuba, Russia, Turkey, and possibly Mexico (though Mexico’s problematic record with allowing ice-pick assasinations for former Marxist leaders might give Maduro pause).

A dark horse option is for Maduro to move to New York’s 14th congressional district, and run as a centrist alternative to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in 2020.

Here’s hoping that Venezuela’s long nightmare might be coming to an end, our once prosperous neighbor can begin to rebuild.
