Exclamation Venezuelan Inflation

Venezuelan Inflation: Pictures Reveal The Piles Of Cash Needed To Buy Everyday Items

Inflation, drug wars, paramilitary insurrection and capitalist invasions aside, Venezuela has a low cost of living, as far as exchange rates go. In the U.S., I can't get tomatoes for $0.35/pound, chicken for $0.42/pound, carrots for $0.21/pound or rice for $0.17/pound like they can. Those diapers and toilet paper seem hella cheap too, but I'm sure that it varies by brand.

If Americans were privy to production costs, versus what they are expected to pay for sh!t, there would be riots in the streets.

Spoiler for PICS:


[ ^ A kilogram of tomatoes [2.2 pounds] costs about 5 million bolívars, or $0.76 USD. ]




[ ^ A 2.4 kilogram [5.29 pounds] chicken is pictured next to 14.6 million bolívars, or $2.22 USD. ]




[ ^ A kilogram [2.2 pounds] of carrots is pictured next to 3,000,000 bolivars, or $0.46 USD. ]




[ ^ A roll of toilet paper is worth 2,600,000 bolivars, or $0.40 USD. ]




[ ^ A 1 kilogram [2.2 pounds] package of rice is pictured next to 2,500,000 bolivars, or $0.38 USD. ]




[ ^ A package of diapers is pictured next to 8,000,000 bolivars, or $1.22 USD. ]
