dollar funding from the u.s. government and it's different agencies or from its allies their allies here in new united states chavez was one of the world's best known socialist leaders and a staunch critic of the united states chavez never held back on criticizing what he called the imperialistic motives of the west that as well in the united states didn't have good diplomatic relations there's been comments coming from washington with officials expressing that maybe in the future now the u.s. and venezuela might have better diplomatic relations but. chavez whether you love him or hate him he leaves norma's big shoes to fill. investigative journalist pepe escobar from the asia times covering latin america says the demonization of chavez in the u.s. may continue after his death in fact obama's message was a bit ridiculous you know he said that we're going to stand united with different

as well and people what kind of people does he mean does he mean that there are people who elected and re-elected chavez in thirteen out of fourteen democratic elections or does he mean these people who go to new york and miami to trade martinis endemol not does evil dangerous communist this is ridiculous the most important thing in my opinion chavez in terms of a political leader he was always referring to an international revolutionary tradition from outside. he was like a nailed fix of jewel called it was more their geopolitics bigger than now was in fact because of the war on almost all directions but disappeared and the thing is why this is the morning edition all shot is the even boston order to end it will grow these be especially in the u.s. first of all venezuela has the largest oil reserves in the world so the united states and european union they can say old you need this wall forcing all you need

curbed the u.k. has taken it upon itself to champion executives greatest perk london if you're a smaller checks at the end of the year may drive managers away depriving the country's last great industry of talent are probably boyko as more from london. it's that time of year again bonus season is in full swing the chief executive of h.s.b.c. is set to pocket a two million pound bonus this month for the way that u.k. bankers get paid could be about to change that's if the european union has anything to do with it at the moment the average bank a salary is just under seventy thousand pounds a year but bonuses for top bankers can be many times more than their baseline depending on personal performance the success of the bank and the market as a whole last year the bonus pools of leading city banks went up to as much as two point four billion pounds a b. c but if the e.u. proposal goes ahead next year banks would be blocked from paying out bonuses larger

voters want to see those bonuses brought down but there are fears that the measure could end up putting london at a disadvantage the text tape. coming from buying because not just in the bonuses but in general is huge estimated to be over and above forty billion pounds a year so the point here is that effectively this is taking away people from the economy this could be forcing people to go elsewhere and the trickle down effect of that will be dramatic overregulation and although there is has cost the k. many of its manufacturing hubs also new economies coming on board and that has all the see how the fact bankers might not be the main market right is in all staring at a second rate thing right now but if we're in the financial services industry it's fine so it's i think you pay a lot to me and a few days think about what they did including charles said george was going to say
