Venezuela's recent reform of the tax on oil windfall revenue not only guarantees increased sales of US dollars to the central bank by state-run oil company Pdvsa, but also additional resources for the Treasury.

Based on the economic and financial report of the tax reform, produced by the National Assembly, the Government will receive additional USD 2.24 billion due to the move. 

The estimate surpasses that of Pdvsa, which calculated additional income for the Treasury at USD 318.08 million.

The approved reform will allow the Executive Office to keep up the spending pace reported in 2012.

Analysts are confident that the higher the income, the higher the expenditures. Apparently, there is no chance of cutting expenditure. Back in January, spending jumped 67% as against a year earlier.

Likewise, the volume of extraordinary operations in 45 days accounted for USD 1.46 billion. In other words, the official budget that began at USD 62.9 billion in 2013 is now at USD 64.5 billion.

Living with HIV/AIDS (II)

At first she agreed that I use her real name, that she had no problems with that at all. After all, living with HIV had driven her to help others – as a workshop facilitator giving talks and conducting seminars, or as a volunteer for local AIDS Service Organizations like Acción Solidaria (Solidary Action) and Mujeres Unidas por la Salud (Women United for Health, or Musa), a support group network for HIV-positive women. But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
