One of the problems in Venezuela is that virtually nothing is produced locally, so even food costs a fortune. For example, roast chicken or a family-sized portion of salchipapas for $20. Most household goods (all imported) go for almost the price you'd find in Colombia or Ecuador (out of reach for almost all Venezuelans). On the other hand, renting an apartment is cheap, less than $400 for a 2-bedroom apartment in one of the best areas of Caracas (El Hatillo).I believe you must have spent considerable time in Venezuela in year 2021 to completely grasp at what I said about how expensive it has become.../ what 100 usd can buy in Caracas or in New York or in London or in Buenos Aires or in Bangkok on present Day. Thats what a person with "deep pockets" will consider.
