By looking at Cuba, we can see the future of Venezuela as desired by Chavez.
Chavez idolized Fidel and wanted Venezuela to be the same, with himself as El Comandante for life.
no doubt chávez liked some elements of the cuban model but i don't remember chávez or his gvt ever claiming that they wanted venezuela to be another cuba. I might be wrong, though, but i really don't remember it. For one thing, the Cuban revolution of Castro, fast, noticeable and lasting, was nothing like the Bolivarian revolution of Chávez, which in reality can't be regarded as a true revolution in the first place. Like i suggested before, venezuela, even after 13 years of you call "chávez's classic socialism", is still a mixed economy.
if chávez had really wanted to follow the cuban model, i think it would have made sense for him to follow the cuban revolution, but he never did it.
