Venezuela's National Assembly on Wednesday passed a partial reform of the Law on Special Contribution for Windfall and Exorbitant Oil Prices in a special meeting that lasted less than one hour.

The bill, introduced by deputies of the ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) on Tuesday, provides for the redistribution of the tax aliquot and an increase in the delivery of US dollars to the Central Bank of Venezuela (BCV).

The approved reform also empowers the Executive Office to approve exemptions on certain new production and secondary recovery oil projects.

This is all there is

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.
