The Homeland is already far away for the 4.5 million Venezuelans who, according to the UN, have left Venezuela since 2014. What happened to "Saudi Venezuela," the one of the 1970s, the one of opulence and prosperity? The one where many immigrants from Latin America and elsewhere arrived in search of a better life? Perhaps part of the answer lies in the fact that this country, where everything is linked to oil and which was rich then, has become poor today. It is also due to the fact that the rentier state has taken advantage of and abused this oil manna since the beginning of the 20th century, without trying to develop an economic policy that would allow it to survive.
