The importance of my country - Venezuela

What my country brings to the world in terms of economy is pretty clear: Oil. We have one of the biggest productions of oil in the world and we ship it all over the globe to fuel pretty much everything. Without us, some of the most powerful economies in the planet including USA would change drastically because our decisitions greatly influence the price of oil. That's the obvious.

What's not so obvious is that in the last few years our president has had influence leading the left wing politics in the continent, he has helped Fidel Castro stay in power hurting the chance of cuban people to live in democracy, the money he has raised from selling oil has been invested in many countries. It is true that the money helped a lot of people abroad, but it is also true that the same money is needed in Venezuela.

So that's it, we are important to the world, time will tell if our influence is positive or not.
