    Yeah hopefully the inflation will level out and the Chinese loans don't hit us as bad as the previous loans from the last 5 presidents.

    Good riddance.

    They bought the PDVSA bonds at 70% discount, by the way.

    There's already a very, very long line of claimants in court to get their billions of investments back after their companies were stolen decades ago by Hugo Chavez, and court-mandated seizures of Venezuela's foreign asset for compensation have already begun. Not to mention all the juicy bits being put up as collateral for those Russian and Chinese loans.

    My guess is there will be scraps left for the bond holders when it gets to their turn.

    Doubtful, Chavez was a hardcore communist being fed shit by the Castro regime that wanted to make Venezuela in the image of Cuba.

    Duterte is not a hardcore communist and his supporters are the Chinese who want to profit out of the Philippines so most likely Duterte will not mess around in the way Chavez did.

    Nicaragua would be the best bet. They are already murdering citizens as they protest.

    Damn, that's rough. It's only gonna get worse, I'm afraid.

    Good to hear they got out!

    Whatever problem they might face here, it sure as hell beats starving to death or being treated like animals (or worse) in their neighboring countries.

    Anyway its so noble of you to help him sending money and stuff.


    Back in 2013 My online buddy from Malaysia send me $100 when my house got damaged by a storm. He also invited me years later to stay at his resort house and his wife looks deliscious.

    The weird thing about Venezuela is that they did their socialist stuff in the worst way possible. They didn't invest in oil extraction and refining at all, so they didn't just suffer from lower prices but they are unable to extract more oil. They also didn't even give basic health stuff to the citizens. Places like Cuba are fucked up but they at least invest in basic medicine. Venezuelans coming to Brazil are sick with every kind of weird preventable disease. They basically brought back measles to Brazil. Which means the government wasn't giving them vaccines.
    Their entire economy was a lie, they had no industries outside of oil.

    @ShinkanPo

    I talked to my buddy last night, i guess i was the one that was shook the most because i was chatting him over the messenger.

    @Arkain2K

    If you want to know someone in the inside you can find him in discord, he isnt as gloomy as i may be letting you guys believe, for someone under such hardships.
