RE: The Ongoing Crisis in Venezuela and the "Petro Coin" continues!
well ... you certainly got the discussion going here . Dont mind if i re-steem i suppose ... apart from the critical reality of the topic its great to see actual engagement instead of "great post" and "nice one".
As for the petro, personally i think, no matter what the hidden agenda might be its at the very least an attempted solution off the beaten track where all else has failed. Even if some bigwig runs off with a wad of cash i dont think thats SO bad if it means people get to eat without having to resort to prostitution or highway robbery. Politicians being what they are, once a certain of power is obtained, corruption seems to be inevitable anyway so its probably best to focus on the collateral and side effects.
Trump going against it doesnt mean all that much as it once would have. Europe doesnt seem averse to adopting it. Deutschland had a motion to not tax purchases made in crypto for instance (which at the core is nothing but a move to push the cash-from-thin-air that made some nouveau riche back into the classic (lets not say outdated) economy.
And moreover if the united lobbies say no, russia is prone to say yes lol ... china meeting with korea is still a question mark but certainly a sign of the times. Its no secret kim soong certainly isnt averse to it seeing as he was being blocked by half the planet of getting funds for resources he turned to it if all i read is correct.
its wait and see, if it actually turns out to be lucrative AND help get votes ?
the united lobbies will turn coat in less time than a photon bounces off the wall after you hit the lightswitch
wait and see
