did you not read the story? the rig is now the property of the venezuelan government
who said that? please point it out as that would be something only a stupid person would concoctSo anyone who conducts business with a foreign country is worthy of derision?
a business person doing business in another country has to recognize that they are subject to the laws and regulations of that countryGreat economic policy you've got there.
the American company failed to operate the oil rigs (because they were being slow paid)
anybody here think that halliburton would be able to get away with not performing its contracts in iraq if its payments were not promptly received?
didn't think so
why does the American rig owner think they can get away with it in chavez' country?
my economic policy is to be businesslike. the American rig owner was not ... he was stupid. and why is it that you have come to his defense for failing to operate the rig which was contracted to generate oil revenues to which both the rig owner and country of venezuela were to become fairly enriched?
