General Motors Company (NYSE:GM): Company And Stock Updates


Dallas, Texas 11/21/2013 (Financialstrend) – On Tuesday, the socialist government in Venezuela said that it was going to fine the local-subsidiary of socialist government almost $85,000 for allegedly selling-spare parts at very high prices. This measure came in the wake of the aggressive drive by Nicolas Maduro, the President’s government to tackle the Venezuela’s high inflation-rate and they have been forcing businesses to lower their prices.

Soldiers & state-inspectors have also been visiting literally hundreds of companies and shops and have also jailed dozens of people who have been accused of price-gouging; Maduro refers to this as the “economic war”. Though the government supporters have lauded these moves, critics are saying that the high inflation-rate is a result of 15 years of statist-economic policies that were started in 1999, by Hugo Chavez, the late President.
