"Venezuela 2018: Portrait of a Failing State" at the Tulsa Committee on Foreign Relations
What happens when one of the world's most oil-wealthy nations becomes a failed state? Our guest is Ambassador Patrick Duddy, the director of Duke University's Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies who also teaches at the Sanford School of Public Policy. Before arriving at Duke, Ambassador Duddy served as a U.S. diplomat for nearly 30 years; upon his retirement, he was one of the State Department's most senior Latin American specialists. Ambassador Duddy recently gave an address at the Tulsa Committee on Foreign Relations titled "Venezuela 2018: Portrait of a Failing State."
