Venezuela's child hunger crisis grows -per BBC News

The BBC report:

'Despite being an oil-rich country, Venezuela is facing record levels of child malnutrition as it experiences severe shortages of food and an inflation rate of over 700%.

The Venezuelan Health Ministry says child mortality has also jumped 30% in the last year. The BBC's Vladimir Hernandez met some of the families struggling to cope.'

Any mention of why Venezuela is in such economic trouble? Any linking of their economic problems to the sort of Marxist economics that Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell believe in?

This is the BBC so somehow I doubt it.
