Hugo Chavez: His Life and Legacy

Hosted by  • 

During fourteen years as President, Hugo Chavez used Venezuela's vast oil resources to help the poor, which made him a hero to masses of people. It also earned the ongoing opposition of the previous ruling class while, in this country, Chavez was demonized as anti-capitalist and anti-American. What's the mood today in Caracas? What about oil, Castro's Cuba and relations with the United States?
