Politics in Purchasing & Supply Management

So what does Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez's references to President Bush as the devil have to do with purchasing and supply management?

At least a little, apparently.

7-Eleven has announced that it is ceasing to use Citgo as its supplier of gasoline sold at its convenience stores. Citgo is owned by the Venezuelan government.

This article on Yahoo News goes into more detail on the topic.

Events like these show how high-profile purchasing decisions can actually be. Gotta love it!
