Donate to donald trump: as the oil venezuela ruined
For a long time venezuela was pretty liquid. and since the united states, more than remove the half of the oil, put president nicolás maduro also on donald trump. the texas-based oil company citgo, which is owned by the venezuelan state giant pdvsa, has donated $ 500,000 for the swearing-in ceremony trumps in washington in january 2017.
The head of citgo, incidentally, is a cousin of hugo chávez, the “socialism of the 21st century. century” reasoned, before maduro to chávez’ death in 2013, introduced the heir to the heads of state continued. anyone who wants to inspect the ruin of this system, get on the airport of caracas, and a good impression. empty duty-free shops, empty luggage, belts, hardly any light. and on the toilet the toilet paper is missing. hardly any airline flying into the country, of which lufthansa is set to 45 years operation.
By 2016, flew in the lufthansa the baden asparagus and the wine for the traditional asparagus dinner of the german-venezuelan chamber of commerce and industry – but around 15 dax companies that were represented here once, is hardly a greater active.
Who else is there, for example, is siemens. it is always about the companies, whether or not you still have a foot in the door, if it should come to a change of power and a return to a market economy. according to venezuela just 0.1 per cent of the german total as last, but exports. germany imports, in turn, for a few hundred million dollars a year of oil.
The world bank according to the terms and conditions for companies in almost any country in the world as bad as in venezuela. in an index, venezuela to 2018 was ranked 188 out of 190 countries. only eritrea and somalia, were behind it.
The oil is a curse and a blessing at the same time. similar to that in brazil under the government of luiz inácio lula da silva gave the long time high to buy price of oil the country with the largest reserves worldwide, the game room, to millions of people, homes and a decent life. however, instead of reducing in the boom years, the dependency – 95 percent of the revenue comes from oil exports and to modernize the oil industry, was almost all imported from abroad, from toilet paper to food.
Against all limits: Venezuelans with no legs ran away from home and fighting for normality
Alfonso mendoza was born without legs to the world, but he never allowed himself to. the 25-year-old skateboarder, surfer and rapper, and recently, father. “to be without legs, born, is hard, but you should not give up because of that. you have to fight, the positive to see,” says mendoza. “i have not, however, always thought so. i wanted to take my life.”
As hundreds of thousands of his countrymen, the venezuelans against hunger, misery and oppression, had fled to his native venezuela. nine months ago, he came with his pregnant wife on hidden paths to colombia. in september his daughter auralys arrived in barranquilla to the world.
“she is my sunshine. my baby relies on me and that’s why i go to work every day with joy,” says mendoza. on a skateboard he rolls out as a rapper “alca” on the streets of the port city and sings in the bus for a small tip. about 30 000 pesos (8,50 euros) he earned as a day.
So mendoza and his family have just come over the rounds, but it’s better than in venezuela it is all. in the oil-richest country in the world it is most needed is missing. venezuela is in a severe economic crisis. from the lack of foreign exchange are unlikely to imported food and drugs. in the supermarkets, the shelves remain mostly empty.
The international monetary fund (imf) expects for the current year with an inflation rate of 1.37 million percent, and a decline in economic output by 18 percent. according to the united nations, around 2.3 million venezuelans have left their home. about a million people have settled in the neighboring country of colombia is low.
If Germany had a rate of inflation, such as Venezuela, then …
Is the rate of inflation, or inflation rate, for many a barely tangible number. they are also the pulse of the economic development and shed light on the economic vitality of a country. not least because many of factors in the (health)act a role in matches (see box). in many of the countries of the world inflation, which is given in percentage, in the single-digit range. in this country it is currently around 1.4 percent. elsewhere, such as in turkey or iran, the inflation reached a rate of higher values of up to 20 to 30 percent.
Some of the purchasing power would;of venezuelans, in order to remain in the patient image, soon clinically dead. in the south american country a hyperinflation reigns, so to speak, a at a record pace, rising inflation (click here to read more on the reasons behind). the international monetary fund (imf) has been calculated for venezuela, a inflation rate of 1.37 million percent in the year 2018, . for the current year, the imf expects an inflation rate of ten million percent. meanwhile, the value increased to 1.7 million percent, reported the “handelsblatt”.
What does this mean? for venezuelans in the first place: for the same money you can suddenly buy less. a lot less. in the network images that illustrate the extent of the hyperinflation: circulating;money bundle of money bundle stack, in addition to food and drugstore articles, to illustrate the fall in value of the venezuelan venezuelan. so a kilogram of tomatoes. the cost is currently ; around five million venezuelan. dozens of bundles of money.
How many euro-bundles of money we would need for shopping, if germany and the euro were stuck in a hyperinflation in the order of magnitude of venezuela? a mind game.
