Venezuela Default Probability Has Never Been Higher; Maduro “Working To Raise Oil Prices”

Venezuela Default Probability Has Never Been Higher; Maduro “Working To Raise Oil Prices” (ZeroHedge, Dec 10, 2014):

With OPEC slashing demand expectations to 12 year lows, oil prices have re-cratered today putting further pressure on socialist-utopia Venezuala which needs $121/bbl to break-even. Credit risk for the South American nation has exploded today to record highs – implying a 93% probability of default and President Maduro has taken to the airwaves to calm a benefit-needy nation… tensions are mounting…

Default risk has gone vertical…

We would do well to remember what happened earlier in the year as deadly protests were only calmed down by promises of generous redistibution of wealth from government coffers… that promised cash is not there any more…

  1. I remember old Chavez, and subsequently Moduro, pledging the return of all their gl
    Old reserves held overseas in BofE and JPMS.
    I simply can find no reference anywhere indicating that it was repatriated.

    So, with all these countries threatening that they want theirs back, like Belgium, Austria etc, and the open statement that after the Germany debacle, there is none, where is it?

    The obvious answer is that it has disappeared…..as in 911 heist, followed by bankster bonuses converting bailout taxpayer funds into bonuses and thus into land and gold.
    Can anybody disprove this theory? It would be comforting to be wrong!
