Talks on Morales' Nationalization Decree to be held on Thursday

According to the BBC and El Universal, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil and Venezuela are going to hold a summit on Thursday. The meeting will take place in Foz do Iguazu and will discuss South America's energetic policies. One of the main issues will be Morales' nationalization decree, which is supported by Chavez and is believed to have a great impact on Brazil and Argentina.

Meanwhile, Brazilian sectors have accused Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez of being a bad influence on Bolivia. "Without doubts, Bolivia's nationalist populism is inspired and supported by the Venezuelan President", said a speaker for the Sao Paolo Industries Federation. "The integration -or disintegration- [of South America] is no longer lead by Brazil, but by the Venezuelan president", he added. Chavez denied any involvement in Morales' decree, but said he supported it. Now there's a surprise.

Always happy in bringing not so happy news:

Chavez has anounced a surprise visit for today at 18:00 bolivian time. Discussing the new decree must be the main agenda.

Evo said that government will decrease the prices on gasoline, gas and diesel, althought they haven´t stated how is going to work this subsidy.

YPFB has now more power than the energy minister.

YPFB has aforesaid the intention for hiring foreign employes since here in Bolivia there are practically few or none hydrocarbons specialist. (I think we already have a lot of actually very good professionals, sadly they don´t agree with MAS politics, hence forth the announcement. Again this means more venezuelans and cubans)

Now we have 3 more variants of tv and radio spots, one showing a 3 step nationalization, another explaining the after/before using the 82%/18% ratio and the one i like to call Evo: a True Bolivian Hero.
