dc.description.abstract With the 1998 election of Hugo Chávez the Venezuelan people signaled a willingness to change. Over the next 7 years, in exchange for their votes, Chávez gave the populace something that previously had not existed, a chance at a better life. Through the implementation of social programs, the Venezuelan standard of life has risen, but it is not yet ideal. For too long neglected (due to numerous faulty development strategies, including neoliberalism), the country and its people were left in such massive disrepair that it will continue to take time in order to fully heal. Yet, the current progress has shown that it is possible. Looking at Venezuela's history, various development strategies, and current development programs, this dissertation shows that Chávez has been able to implement his new Bolivarian development philosophy and not only improve the lives of his people, but also enhance the appeal of socialism within the region.
