Venezuela to issue larger bill as currency continues to melt
The central bank said in a statement Saturday that six new bills ranging from 500 to 20,000 Bolivars will begin circulating on Dec. 15. Currently the largest-denominated bill is 100 bolivars, while a 2-liter soft drink bottle can cost 25 times that amount.
Somehow, politicians can never figure out that this is a bad sign, and that — just maybe — they should consider reversing policies.
OTOH, if they opt for an absorbent paper, it will help with other shortages.
