BraveFart July 6, 2016 at 2:41 pm I have to say that, from the pictures, I am impressed with the frugality of the Venezuelan women – or perhaps it’s a dietary thing. Had that been Mrs BraveFart collecting supplies of toilet rolls, she would have required something like a coal barge to move her monthly consumption. Andrew M July 6, 2016 at 3:49 pm On Mark Weisbrot, you claim he supports price controls, but the article you link to doesn’t seem to mention it. Here’s one of his recent articles (20 Feb 2016) where he suggests: * set up a food-stamp-type system * allow the currency to float * eliminate dysfunctional price controls Sounds reasonable to me. Andrew M July 6, 2016 at 3:51 pm Sorry, just found the bit about price controls. That article was written in 2013 though; he’s obviously seen the error of his ways since then. Dennis the Peasant July 6, 2016 at 9:29 pm Not if he’s advocating a food-stamp-type system, he hasn’t. Bloke in Costa Rica July 6, 2016 at 9:55 pm Ecks, it’s ¡qué viva el socialismo! This is going to get a lot worse before it gets better. Stand by for a large number of starving Venezuelan women to get machine-gunned by Guardias Nacionales.

The only thing wrong with them is that the poor would prefer to have cash instead; but in poor areas there’s usually a thriving black market for converting food stamps to cash.
