Moody's Investors Services has downgraded from stable to negative the rating of the debt of Venezuelan state-run oil company Pdvsa. The move came one day after the firm did the same with the bonds issued by the Venezuelan Government.

However, Moody's has reaffirmed both Venezuela's B1-B2 oil industry bond ratings in local currency and foreign currency, respectively.

"Actions concerning the rating of Venezuela's bonds express the growing uncertainty amid the political succession of President (Hugo) Chávez, and the impact of a looming transition in civil order, the economy, and a visibly deteriorated fiscal position," Moody's explained in a statement cited by Reuters.

A simple reason: there is oil galore, would suffice to explain Guyana's actions. Another explanation lies in the little or none efforts made by the Venezuelan government to thwart the move by the Guyanese. This is certainly not a new problem, but a problem only recently highlighted because oil is involved. But what other resources does the disputed area hold? For most of us it is a section on the map with black and white stripes on it, a depiction of something distant, alien, a nothingness not worth paying much attention to in geography classes back in elementary school.
