Alfredo Malaret, Penn State

Venezuela was cursed with the world’s largest oil reserves. The South American country suffers the world’s most expensive Big Mac and the highest homicide per capita. As the country slides ever closer to hyperinflation and crime rates continue to spin wildly, one thing remains clear: the price of the regime’s survival appears to be the slow death of all Venezuelans. Join us for a compelling talk on the future of Venezuela. Alfredo Malaret is a second-year graduate student from the School of International Affairs specializing on Development Policy and International Security Studies. Growing up in Caracas, Venezuela, Malaret is strongly passionate for the eradication of economic disparity in this country. To reach his goals, he will be moving to Peru by the end of the year, where he will start his professional career working at the United Nations Regional Centre for Peace, Disarmament and Development in Latin America and the Caribbean.
