ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The strong support of Sen. Bernie Sanders among college students in the recent presidential campaign shows a dreadful lack of economic understanding. Therefore I strongly suggest a new college course be created: “The Economics of Venezuela.” The subject matter would cover the severe economic conditions socialism has caused in that nation, where many go hungry, hospitals are woefully under-supplied and babies die for lack of medicine. The course should also cover the sad history of socialism and communism in China, Russia, other Eastern European nations, Cuba, etc. The lack of basic freedom in those nations could be a follow-up course.
