Once you start printing larger denomination fiat...you might as well just give up.  Ask Zimbabwe how that worked out.

The sad thing about both Venezuela and Zimbabwe,  neither were poor nations before their current "leadership".  Now they are both basket cases. 

My local library has a travel video produced before Zimbabwe went off the tracks.   It was once a pretty nice place to visit.

A cautionary tale of socialism and despotism run amok...a cautionary tale if there ever was one.

I like the comment posted by perfessa - "Those ignorant young souls climbing aboard the Bernie Sanders wagon are too young to remember communism but should be forced to read about countries like Venezuela, Ecuador and their contemporaries. Socialism/progressivism/communism----all the same crapola"

But stupid is stupid...and the stupid here will merely say "They didn't get it right, we're smarter".

More crapola!

The situation in Venezuela has become so bad that even soldiers are struggling to support themselves.

Over the weekend, six members of the Venezuelan military were detained by local authorities for stealing goats, the Venezuelan newspaper El Nacional reported Sunday. It said the soldiers confessed to stealing the goats and said they did it to feed themselves, since they had no food left in their barracks.

“It’s not a good sign when your military doesn’t have enough food, and when the military has been relegated to guarding and protecting food lines,” said Jason Marczak, director of the Latin America Economic Growth Initiative at the Atlantic Council. “This is endemic of the problems going on across the country.”

No shyt?  it's not a good sign when droves of people are starving.  This is about to get really nasty.  But hey, it's not socialism's fault, the fault is in the implementation not the ideology, right?!

Morons.

Venezuelan opposition leader Henrique Capriles said the army must decide whether it is "with the constitution or with (President Nicolas)Maduro"

Venezuela's opposition leader urged his country on Tuesday to defy a state of emergency decreed by the government as it grapples with an acute political and economic crisis.

Henrique Capriles spoke as the opposition-controlled congress prepared to debate the sweeping measures ordered by President Nicolas Maduro.

He said lawmakers will probably reject Maduro's plan, and that if the government insists the decree remain in force, "it is up to us... to ignore this decree."

Having thrown in the towel on hyperinflation by printing banknotes with 200-times-higher denominations, Bloomberg reports that things in Venezuela have continued to get worse with the currency now so devalued (with even simple purchases requiring so many bills) that instead of counting bills, they are weighing them.

Once one of the world’s strongest currencies, the bolivar has been reduced to a nuisance. Basic purchases require hundreds of bills. Shoppers shove piles of them into gym bags before venturing into crime-plagued streets and shopkeepers stash thousands in boxes and overflowing drawers. In the absence of official data, economists are left to guess what the inflation rate is. Estimates for this year range from 200 percent to 1,500 percent.

At a delicatessen counter in eastern Caracas, Humberto Gonzalez removes slices of salty white cheese from his scale and replaces them with a stack of bolivar notes handed over by his customer.

“It’s sad," Gonzalez says. "At this point, I think the cheese is worth more.”

Quote
As the accompanying chart shows, Venezuela’s inflation is not about ready to break out in hyperinflation, but has decelerated dramatically from annual rates exceeding 700 percent in 2015 to today’s still punishing rate of 74.4 percent.

By the way, for those who play fast and loose with the word “hyperinflation,” the hyperinflation threshold is 12,875 percent, year over year.

So its not "hyper-inflation" because someone picked some arbitrary high inflation rate. See, Socialism isn't a disaster :)
Sure they are weighing cash for payment but don't irresponsibility thorw around words like hyperinflation to describe it.

Obviously the Tylers thought  it was funny.

Yeah defining things out of existence is one of the Left's favorite tactics.  It gets back to this idea they have that they can set reality by stating so.

Weighing stacks of currency sounds a lot like Weimar marks being used as wallpaper and firewood.

Yeah the comments are a hoot.  "What part of weighing cash instead of counting it does he not get?"  Another guy pointed out that a real world definition of hyperinflation probably includes that point when your country cannot even import toilet paper.  Though on that point it occurs to me that one of their problems presents a solution to the other.

While many exiles had fled to the United States, surging numbers, like the Sequieras, now head to other Latin American nations. The change probably stems from President Trump’s tough anti-immigration stance and the fact that fewer Venezuelans can afford the airfare.

But no doubt many of those hitting Mexico will be ushered to our border...gotta get that wall up.

Venezuelan protester gets too close to crashed motorcycle.

Still, it illustrates their struggle.

Dear Lord these people are imbeciles!  Socialism kills, it kills the brain, it kills the soul...it will eventually kill everything it touches.

32,714% inflation...two days ago, has to be worse today...and the answer for socialists is adding then taking away zeroes on the shatwipe they call bolivars?

Still...socialists here are just as stupid, just as hive-minded, just as foolish...so do not think for a nano-second "it could never happen here".

Lord sounds like Germany after WWI,  need a wheelbarrow full of money to buy a loaf of bread.  Taking the zero's off it doesn't make it any less worthless.
