https://archive.fo/lRjN7 https://archive.is/cUzzR Maduro, the president of Venezuela, just announced a constituent to change the constitution amidst weeks of protests sparkled over the self coup caused by the government allied tribunal by overtaking the legislative branch’s responsibilities. This constituent is called in a way so that the people in charge of selecting the new constitution are the ones part of certain sectors, like the comunas and misiones.
Try to imagine a Obama who lost congress to republicans and attempted to strip them of their power with the tribunal, has heavy protests from the population calling for a constituent and leaving in charge of it people benefited by welfare and other gives, scholarships, etc.
And not only that, but after all the market distortions that they’ve cause through the years, the government announced the EIGHTH system to date to obtain foreign currency, with a price set by the government, going through whatever bureaucratic mess they require you to and at the end being unlikely to be allowed to buy the dollars anyway.
And if that wasn’t enough, as if fixing the price of certain first need products wasn’t enough, they want a general freezing of prices, because, obviously, when you can’t battle a three digit inflation you don’t do something sane like stopping printing tons of cash, but instead, force every price to freeze, what could possibly go wrong?
