As set out in decree 9,315, signed on December 9 and published in the gazette, Maduro may approve additional credits to the budget, with prior authorization from the National Assembly, and pass decrees for the transfer of funds from the budget to ministries. He is also authorized to approve operations for public loans.

The Venezuelan vice-president may also order expropriations or compulsory acquisition prior authorization from the president.

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?
