    Tony The Tiger Bugs Out Of Venezuela

    Kellogg the most popular supplier of cereal products in Venezuela has pulled out.

    https://www.cnbc.com/2018/05/15/kell...ic-crisis.html

    The link wasnít too specific about the cause, but I suspect Kellogg hasnít been paid in a while.

    Kellogg is hardly the Lone Ranger in pulling out, as the link describes.

    It seems amazing to me that people will put up with so much before they do anything.

    Venezuela was at one time one of the highest performing economies in the region. Kellogg's did the right thing making their product in place as part of a free market!

    But they should have pulled out the minute that changed..............

    Leaving people to starve is one of the most horrible deaths possible. But to Communists it saves bullets!
