The fourth Monday in June Carnival of Latin America and the Caribbean
Welcome to the Carnival of Latin America and the Caribbean. If you would like your posts to be included, please email me: faustaw2 "at" gmail "dot" com.
The week's big stories: Chavez threatens to stop oil sales to EU, EU says he "misunderstood", and the US Treasury Department designated Venezuelan diplomat as a Hizbollah supporter (see links under Venezuela).
We discussed this and other Latin American topics with Monica Showalter of Investor's Business Daily in last Friday's podcast.
