What caused Venezuela’s economic difficulties?

The article ignores Western sanctions, embargoes, and theft (e.g. $1.2 billion in gold stolen by the Bank of England, plus $7 billion in assets stolen by the USA).

It also ignores the fact that rich oligarchs in Venezuela (who own the TV stations, supermarket chains, etc) all collude against Maduro.
