National Assemblyman Jose Manuel Gonzalez

Jose Manuel Gonzalez worked as a businessman in the agriculture industry for many years. He was president of an agricultural organization and while in that position he learned to listen to the needs of others. He has been involved in public service since that time and his vast experience is of great value to Venezuela. The agriculture industry is in a difficult situation at the present time according to Jose Manuel Gonzalez. It has been unable to produce as much as 500,000 tons of rice and 300,000 tons of corn. It also cannot exchange its goods at a good rate on the market. There is a roller coaster effect going on with the value of goods and it is not healthy for the local economy.

The assembly of Venezuela needs to understand what is happening in the agriculture industry. It was poorly managed by its administrators. The government adopted closed door policies that were loaded with flaws and turned a deaf ear to those who understood the problems. They made excuses about how the problem was not their responsibility and as a result, now the problem has gotten even bigger. These people are thieves who are stealing dollars from the Venezuelan people instead of trying to help. They are overbilling for services and pocketing cash through corruption schemes. There is a distortion in the value of goods and smuggling is going on as well and this has devastated Venezuela. Jose Manuel Gonzalez wants to put an end to the corruption so the nation’s economy can begin to heal.

There is a national state of insecurity which affects the agriculture industries ability to produce goods. This has always been a problem in nations that depend on agriculture. Guarico, the state that Jose Manuel Gonzalez represents is not safe because of massive vandalism and criminal activity that results from the poor economic conditions. Farmers are desperate and they have been forced to pay extortionate amounts of money to the local gangs. There are also kidnappings on a weekly basis and the people have no one to defend them. Jose Manuel Gonzalez is a man who wants to solve these problems.

Charles Koch Launches Stand Together

Charles Koch has expanded his philanthropic campaign by launching Stand Together. It is a venture philanthropy organization that seeks to tackle deep-seated social problems and reinvigorate the civil society. It plans to do this by solving problems the poor have using institutions and organizations they have founded. It is a new approach given many rich corporates help by dictating to people what they want to be done.

Stand Together has been in the works for the last year but launched this year with a website and plans for this year. The first plan it intends to carry out is a team with Bob Woodson to continue his advocacy of training grass root leaders.

Stand together is the most last in a long list of philanthropist groups associated with Charles Koch that has for a long time fought the rights of the poor. Groups like Americans for Prosperity and Libre Initiative have been active in the America social fabric for a long time. They have contributed their fair share of transformation in the American social life. Stand Together is said will increase the proportion the Koch Brothers contributed to philanthropic causes outside the political core they are well known.

Since 1973, The Koch Brothers have fought hard to promote small government ideologies. It is an Idea shared by their father, Fred Koch. They have achieved this thinking through political donations and promoting libertarian policies and curriculum in schools. They reveal they plan to spend $ 900 million over the next year in political lobbying. Most of the money will go into preparing for the elections next year.

Stand together will be directed by Evans Feinberg. He will be assisted by Richard Fink, who was named as the most influential man in Charles Koch circle. Brian Hooks will serve in an advisory capacity. Brian is the head of Charles Koch Foundation and Charles Koch Institute.

Charles Koch is the CEO and president of Koch Industries. He has been in the business since 1950 when he took over. In 1962, it had a turnover of around $ 50 million annually. Today, Charles Koch has grown it to have over $ 110 billion annually.

Charles Koch is a graduate of MIT with a Ph.D. He is married to Liz, and they have four kids. Liz says they chose Wichita Kansas as their home because it is a great place to bring up children and do business.
