Galoppierende Inflation

In Venezuela kostet ein Föhn 697 Dollar 

A hair dryer as photographed in a studio with an illustrative price tag of $697 (US dollars), equivalent to the Bs. 4,392 (bolivars) that it costs on average to purchase in Caracas at the official exchange rate of 6.3 bolivars per dollar, in Caracas September 29, 2014. Venezuela's economic crisis has led to some shocking and surreal price distortions that hit people's buying power dramatically. While the government of President Nicolas Maduro calls the country's minimum wage of Bs. 4,252 the highest in the region when converted to $675 using the official exchange rate, the galloping black market for currency considers it as just $42.50 when converted at the street rate of Bs. 100 per US dollar, the rate which many importers and retail outlets must use to acquire hard currency. Venezuela's annual inflation rate of more than 63 percent is the highest in the Americas, according to official statistics. Picture taken September 29, 2014.

Im Land mit den weltweit grössten Ölreserven steigen die Preise in astronomische Höhen. Die Zentralbank gab die Inflationsrate zuletzt mit 63 Prozent an – die höchste auf dem amerikanischen Kontinent. Unabhängige Ökonomen schätzen die Inflation aber mehr als doppelt so hoch ein, schreibt das «Wall Street Journal». 

Die Preissteigerung führt dazu, dass sowohl Luxus- als auch Alltagsgüter unerschwinglich sind. Der venezolanische Fotograf Carlos Garcia Rawlins hat in einem Fotoprojekt Gegenstände mit illustrativen Preisschildern ausgestattet. Die Preise – in Dollar – entsprechen den von der Regierung ausgegebenen fixen Wechselkursen.

    Highlight Highlight Mit den riesigen Ölreserven sollte Venezuela zu den reichsten Ländern gehören. Die sozialistische Revolution von Chavez und seinem Nachfolger haben aber innert Kürze zu Hyperinflation, Armut, Arbeitslosigkeit, hoher Kriminalität usw. geführt. Ein weiteres Beispiel eines verarmten Volkes, dilettantischen Despoten ausgeliefert.

      Highlight Highlight Das ist schlicht unwahr. Ein Blick ins Geschichtsbuch würde helfen: Inflationsraten von 70%, Korruption, Elitenwirtschaft, tausende Tote.. Und das VOR Chavez' Amtsantritt. Chavez ist sicher kein Förderer der Demokratie, aber ein Teil der Südamerikanischen Misere ist deutlich mit den Folgen von Kolonialismus, Konzernimperialismus und der nach wie vor andauernden Apartheit gegenüber den Indigenen verbunden.

13 Bilder eines japanischen Künstlers, die dich nachdenklich stimmen werden

Ein Bild sagt mehr als tausend Worte... Jedenfalls fühlt man sich so, wenn man die Illustrationen des mysteriösen japanischen Künstlers Avogado6 betrachtet.
