Could Hugo Chavez threaten Venezuela baseball?
Maria Burns Ortiz has a story at ESPN.com that indicates Hugo Chavez's nationalization policies are starting to foreign direct investment -- in baseball:
With that kind of talent emerging from Venezuela in recent seasons, one would assume that big league clubs would be flocking to the South American nation in search of the next superstar. However, the cultural and political scene in Venezuela is undergoing rapid and radical transformation, and instead of flocking to the country, teams are fleeing over concerns about safety and political uncertainty. They aren't leaving in droves just yet, but the stream has been steady enough to raise a red flag about the future....posted by Dan on 11.18.07 at 06:30 PM
Given this work about the poor working conditions of some baseball operations in Central America:
I have to at least question some of your central assumptions at work here. What sort of conditions are Venezuelan baseball players and staff under in Venezuela? You don't seem to give us any indication in your post, and to take the employers word for it would be sloppy intellectualism.posted by: Matt on 11.18.07 at 06:30 PM [permalink]
