Meet The Rich Kids Of Venezuela

“Like every utopian socialist state in the history of the world, the children of Venezuela’s elite central planners spend their time gallivanting around Europe and fanning themselves with 100-dollar-bills while the people immiserated by their family’s policies starve in the streets.

Maria Gabriella, the oldest daughter of former leader Hugo Chavez, is Venezuela’s richest woman, according to the Daily Mail. She reportedly is worth some $4 billion, thanks to a fortune that has been secreted away in European bank accounts. The wealthy socialite earned her fortune while serving as Venezuela’s first lady when her father was still alive.

But if Chavez’s children are behaving badly by the standards of socialism (where being rich is a sin and being a billionaire is a policy error), the children of Chavez’s successor are doing even worse.

Nicolas Maduro’s stepsons Yoswal Gavidia Flores and Walter Gavidia Flores recently managed to blow $45,000 on an extravagant 18-night stay at the Ritz hotel in Paris, where rooms cost $591 a night, and breakfast is an extra $40.”
