Venezuelan Inflation To Hit 1 Million Percent This Year

CNBC: Venezuelan inflation predicted to hit 1 million percent this year

* "Sadly, it is a long story of economic mismanagement."
* Over 1.5 million people have left the county since 2014.

Venezuela is arguably going through one of the largest economic disasters in world history, with prices soaring uncontrollably each day.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) said this week that the Latin American nation is "stuck in a profound economic and social crisis" and that inflation will hit 1 million percent by the end of the year. The Fund compared the situation in Venezuela to Germany in 1923 and Zimbabwe in the late 2000s, where the collapse in demand for money led to historically high prices and dramatic social issues.

"Hyperinflation brings the economic system to a halt: It scares off foreign investors, discourages local business, destroys the value of savings and wages for households, thus damaging long-term economic growth," Francesco Filia, chief executive officer at the London-based fund Fasanara Capital, told CNBC via email.

Maduro has the stone age economy mentality. I have big respect for bus drivers, but I think that Maduro was not among the best and this can explain that.

Another propaganda article from the toilet licking maggots in the MSM.

Nowhere in the CNBC article do they mention that the Maduro government is Socialist.
Even worse, the scumbags use the blame shifting / passive paragraph:
"" Furthermore, Venezuela has also been hit by international sanctions. The United States prohibited dealings in new debt from the Venezuelan government and the country's state oil firm, arguing these help the government, which the U.S. described as a "dictatorship." "

Trump needs to use his "pen and phone" Obama style, to debundle all cable channels.
Within a year, there would be only two cable news channels left. Fox and one of the Leftist apologentsia channels.
