Well, that didn’t take long.
A mere day after the SUNDECOP began “controlling” the prices for all goods and services in the economy, we are hearing from the Bolivarian National Guard that there is hoarding going on, that articles have “disappeared” from the shelves, and that they simply will not tolerate this. Coffee, cooking oil, and milk are already hard to find.
Perhaps they should look for the missing articles here. Oops, too late.
There you have it, folks. If, like me, you predicted scarcity and chaos thanks to this law, pat yourselves in the back. We are geniuses.

We’ve been able to hang on for 21 years in one of the craziest media landscapes in the world. We’ve seen different media outlets in Venezuela (and abroad) closing shop, something we’re looking to avoid at all costs. Your collaboration goes a long way in helping us weather the storm.Donate
