Ugo Panizza writes article about Venezuela for Il Foglio
August 02, 2018

Ugo has recently contributed an article about Venezuela under the running title W la democrazia dei mercati (W the democracy of the markets) in the August 2 printed edition of the Italian newspaper Il Foglio where he broadly discusses the situation of PDVSA, Venezuela's state-run petroleum company, the so-called "Hunger Bonds" and freedom of press. Those interested in the "Hunger Bonds" (a term coined by Harvard and Venezuelan economist Ricardo Hausmann) can read Ugo's recent Working Paper (joint with Mito Gulati) by the title The Hausmann-Gorky Effect.
