In Time of Crisis Venezuelan President Turns to Music

Description

Amidst an economic crisis and an opposition push to remove him, Venezuela's socialist leader Nicolas Maduro has launched a radio show devoted to salsa music in an effort to improve morale in the impoverished country. Though Venezuela's 30 million people adore music, especially salsa, Maduro's show has fueled criticism that he is disconnected from reality in a country where millions are skipping meals amid shortages and rising prices.

  • Vrai ou faux : la France est-elle le pays qui taxe le plus les cigarettes ?

    Au vu du niveau de taxation dans l'Hexagone, nous ne sommes pas loin d'être le pays qui taxe le plus les cigarettes. En effet, sur un paquet de tabac qui coûte 10 euros, 85% du prix part dans les caisses de l'État. Ce qui est trop élevé par rapport à la majorité de nos voisins européens avec la Belgique taxant à 78% et le Luxembourg à 69%. Cependant, nous ne sommes pas les champions, mais nous sommes sur le podium avec la Finlande et l'Estonie qui taxent les cigarettes plus que nous.
