Venezuela’s hyperinflation rivaled only by Zimbabwe, IMF says


Channel 10 Washington:  International Monetary Fund economists warned Monday that Venezuela is facing an economic collapse.

Late last year, IMF economists were concerned that officials had failed to implement remedial measures.

    Millennials unfortunately don’t know this because their progressive pinko professors distort history inside universities, which ironically was infiltrated by…the Russians (Soviets)! You just can’t make this stuff up. And don’t take my word for it, take Yuri’s:
