Fistful of Bolivars Worth $25

I don’t know how or why thinking individuals can endorse or support socialism.  Ron Paul explains . . .

No matter how hard governments try, socialism can never work. No matter how hard central banks try, they cannot overpower supply and demand. Venezuela provides a great (and sad) example of yet another country that has taken the wrong path on both accounts. At the link below, you can see how much cash a Venezuelan is permitted to take from an ATM in a day. You’ll also find out how little it’s worth. Yet another paper currency heads for the dustbin on history.

For those wondering, the fistful of cash is worth about $25.

The good news: those locals lucky enough to still have money in a Venezuela bank don’t need a wheelbarrow to carry it.

The bad news: those same locals soon will.
