Hidden behind the rich millions & # 39; is another sad fact about inflation.
In the Venezuelan capital of Caracas, 2.4 kg of chickens cost about 14 million new Bolivar (51,000 VND). Meanwhile, if the use of the old Bolivar buyer, the seller will receive the money pile can be four times the size of the chicken.
A roll of toilet paper costs about 2.6 million new Bolivar (9.100 VND). If we use old money, we will have to witness the pile of money heavier than the paper roll. Fruits and vegetables are also inevitable. 10 roots cost 3 million Bolivar (10,500 VND), while you use old money, buyers need dozens of big pennies.
In Venezuela, a bag of 1 kg of rice costs 2.5 million new Bolivar (8,800 VND), an even more expensive sanitary napkin – 3.5 million new Bolivar (12,000 VND). Tomatoes here cost about 5 million Bolivar new / kg (17,600 VND), cheese costs about 7.5 million Bolivar new / kg (26,500 VND), baby diapers cost about 8 million new Bolivar / bag (28,000 VND), meat costs 9.5 million new Bolivar per kg (33,000 VND). Before the new Bolivar, Venezuelans often had to carry a bag of money instead of a wallet and sometimes had to pay instead of counting.

According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), inflation in Venezuela will rise to 1,000,000 this year. As a result, the new Bolivarian currency of Venezuela started to be used instead of the old Bolivar, which has been considerably devalued. The exchange rate between these two currencies is 1: 100,000, which means that zero of the current price is deducted.
The Bolivar Bolivar has the lowest value of 2 Bolivar, of which the highest is 500 Bolivar, including paper currency and coins. Two new and old currencies will coexist for a while.
