Evo Morales on the Daily Show

by Miguel de Icaza

Tonight, Jon Stewart had Evo Morales, the president of Bolivia on his show and interviewed him.

I learned in the interview that Evo Morales made two promises during his campaign: to nationalize the energy sector and to do "Reforma Agraria" (sorry, forgot the translation).

He achieved both within eight months in office.

In the energy sector, he said that the Bolivian government used to receive 300 million dollars for its energy and today it receives 2,000 million dollars.
