Of course if you are in the top 5 of the largest oil producers, you can afford a lot of mismanagement and bad policies - but If you want to make the best use of your resources, then "chavism" is not a way to go. Chavists' hatred of the rich will cause their downfall ultimately.
Just because they're middle or upper class doesn't mean they're good or will act in the best ineterests for their country.
A country's policies have to be in the interest to the majority of the population. That majority just so happens to be poor. That means if you have to improve their living standard and education at the expense of a exploitative richminority and their northern anglosaxon masters so be it.
You talk about the "educated" as if they are improving the nation. No, they're looking to exploit it. It's in their interest that they stay the only educated ones in the country.
Of course they'll "migrate" to the US. They're their agents after all. Leftovers of the disgusting right wing juntas.
Your beloved rich, especially in south america have been a cancerous leftover from the slaveowning spanish colonial times. They've always propped up murderous dictators, formed family knit or drug dealer governments and helped US corporations exploit the overwhelming majority of the poor population.
