Crimerate - Depends on the location you live, also its quite unlucky to get robbed in serval locations, same happens in EU, 5 friends of mine got robbed and haven't been robbed here, so whatever. Unemployment rate ? Only for those who wanna things easier without fight for it. I haven't got a single month without a job in my entire life(currently soft. eng).
Answering your question, the problem is deeper then you can even imagine. We have taxes almost as higher as Sweeden ones, the governament invest about U$XXX BI on infrastructure/year, this money just desappear. Who do this ? Our governament (In case of Venezuela, Chaves) So yes, basically yes, you guys don't shit about what is really wrong here due to the fucking manipulated media.... sad but true
