Naturally, this comment was left by a paid cybernaut, probably one of the many recruited by some of the "agencies" that the Ecuadorian's government hires at huge cost, in order to propel its 10 year endless campaign. If anything can be called a success of this left winged populist regime, it should be its political marketing. In fact, all the investment made by it throughout the last decade amounts to less than 20% of the state's budget, and most of it has been built by Chinese companies at pretty elevated costs with more than doubtful quality. The 80% of the state's budget for the past 10 years, roughly 200 MM, has been spent in bureaucracy, propaganda, demagogic subsidies and debt service. The state's debt has grown from 11 MM to more than 50 MM, which practically equals the investment made in infrastructure, and clearly indicates that this regime has only "made" the roads, hydroelectric plants, etc., but hasn't paid for any of them. We have a president that bought 2 jets at 100 million, in order to travel around the world with his big entourage ca. 100 weeks of the total 500 he's been in office. All the state's companies, like gas and electric, telecom, 3 tv channels, a couple of newspapers and the state's airline, are practically bankrupt, and the state's deficit has grown so fast since the oil prices sunk, that almost half of the whole debt has been acquired at 7% and higher interest rates. Ecuador is selling its flag airline and some of the hydroelectric plants, in order to get money to pay government salaries. The only thing preventing us from Venezuela's faith, is the fact that we don't have a currency of our own, and that's why the government is pushing its "electronic money" agenda, as a virtual national currency will allow the state to pay internal expenses without support of the scarce hard currency. No need to explain the notable gentlemen that subscribe this article, if in fact they have and it's not another of our government's scams, that such a plan will trigger a double currency market, which will most surely end in hyperdevaluation of the one, and all the known consequences to the economy.
