Workers that work for the Government Owned Oil Company are now so hungry that many are too weak to work properly and productivity continues to drop

 

Given extremely low wages not keeping up with inflation many workers are simply walking off the job

 

Last month in January a single week saw 10,000 workers quit.

I realised this the other day, on tv and internet I see how americans and people from first world countries throw whole cakes, or eggs or food in general away and people in here have to pay half the minimum salary  to buy a 30 egg carton:selena:

i’m so confused by all of this... like what is Nicolás waiting for? does he want to starve a whole country or does he want people to clean their sh*** with their hands given the lack of toilet paper?...

what is his motivation, why isn’t he taking action, why haven’t things gotten more physical? I see them protesting but... honestly... that isn’t going to stop with protests... can a Venezuelan please elaborate?

He keeps trying to fix things with more price controls and interventions

 

But Government taking ownership of resources and poorly running them and poor regulations is what caused the problem to begin with

 

Extreme socialism requires a lot of competence to make it work since the Government makes more laws that have to be thought-out and more taxes putting more financial resources in the Government than the private sector for the Government to spend as they see fit

 

A Competent socialist Country results in Countries like Scandinavian lands

 

Poorly run socialism results in Greece and Venezuela

I fear Andres Manuel Looez Obrador will get elected as Mexico’s new President since it’s being said we would end up like Venezuela...

This is absolutely true, and it's very sad what we are going through here, i've seen people literaly eating from garbage bags on the street, and even children. Another thing that nobody else seems to point about the situation in my country is that the government created armed groups, called "colectivos", which make sure people doesn't start riots, and as soon as they start, they are capable of even killing whoever participates in those riots. And the state knows about it because they created them, and authorities are going to do absolutely nothing about it. Anyway, this crisis is not going to be fixed by riots, because the truth is that we're jusgt being ruled by very evil people who don't care at all about venezuelans, and won't think twice for killing anyone who stands on their way.

He doesn't even try:triggered:
He hears crisis and say that we are in our best moments of our history or that the oposition and Trump boicoting the system, and then he goes with Cilia (the first lady) and they start dancing during a national "statement" of minimun 3 hours (for lack of words that could interpret what "cadena" means in english) in all the public television.:triggered:

The worst part is the i'm not even trying to be funny.

In more serious talks, the multiple monetary changes make it easy for government people to obtain cheap dollars rather than the dollar that the market places, which would be the black dollar with the price controls.:interestinga:
