The global economic crisis has been very difficult for certain national economies since 2008. Important political decisions have been made to rescue local economies; for instance, the US Government bailing out several organizations, including banks, from bankruptcy or the eruption of protectionism in several countries. One of the latest cases is the expulsion from Venezuela of a leading French distributor.
