King Juan Carlos once put Hugo Chavez in his place. In 2007, he told him to shut up.
It's too bad a demagogue like Chavez can win power by pandering to the poor and attacking the rich, and then end up making everyone poorer. The rich don't deserve any special sympathy, but those who claim to care for the poor ought to study economic and political history.
Again and again, the world has seen misery when a government that claims to know it all punishes the successful and insists on detaching an economy from the competition, risks and rewards of a free market.
