Considering that such institutions are not required in any country, the president of Venezuela, Hugo Chávez, reiterated his government's decision to keep intervening in spculative brokerage firms operated in the South American nation, a move that follows the investigation of alleged speculation operations illegal in buying and selling currencies. This observation was made by the Venezuelan head of state late on Thursday in Caracas, during the swearing Campaign Command Bolivar 200, which will promote the candidacies of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) in parliamentary elections next September.
Chavez said that the operation of brokerage houses are not necessary for the economy of any country, let alone to Venezuela, which is developing a socialist system. He said that before the collapse of European and Asian exchanges earlier this week, the Venezuelan stock market has remained unchanged because it's under the intervention of the National Securities Commission (CNV). "The stock market here is now tranquil because we intervened. What do we need from thes blessed brokerage houses, nothing.No country needs them, much less here with socialism," Chavez said .
He said that these institutions, in the hands of the Venezuelan bourgeoisie, engage in irregular practices which violate the foreign exchange control,wich exist to protect international reserves in Venezuela. "We all know them to cheat," Chavez said referring to the stock exchange, while recalling that early in his mandate,the Venezuelan bourgeoisie was free to enagage in the exchange of currencies in Venezuela, which gave them the green light to the Venezuelan bourgeoisie to steal some 30 billion dollars.
