What's Next?

After the oil/gas nationalization and a strong hint that mining and forestry would follow, the government is now preparing a land reform. Los Tiempos reports that the government is thinking of launching their land reform sometime before the Constituent Assembly begins. This would constitute the second land reform in Bolivia in a period of 53 years. Expect another circus when this happens -presumably before the election of Constituents as well.

Land Viceminister Almaraz said that in case of resistance by the landowner elite, the government will be ready to use public force. Could this be the spark that ignites the secessionist fire?

Another fatal blow to property rights and the rule of law -brought to you by Evo.
