Financial markets are spooked about the last bastion of reason in the Venezuelan government finally falling, according to Bloomberg’s Anatoly Kurmanaev – whose work continues to be interesting and thought-provoking.

The money quote:

“A spokesman for the Finance Ministry declined to comment on potential bond sales …

A spokeswoman for the central bank declined to comment on the delays to economic reports and data credibility.”

No comment. Nothing to say. Can’t talk. It’s *always* the same with these folks.

Tell me again, why exactly does the government complain about its coverage in international media when it won’t/can’t answer simple questions?
