America's Debate > Archive > Assorted Issues Archive > [A] International Debate

Aug. 27 (Bloomberg) -- Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said the country's economy must move away from capitalism and eliminate ``large'' land holdings.

Chavez, who won a recall vote against him on Aug. 15, said the country's businessmen should help the government change the world's fifth-largest oil supplier into a ``humanist'' economy from a ``neo-liberal'' one.
