The central narrative* of interest in the earlier post, by the way, is how the ebbs and flows of Venezuela’s foreign balance of payments inspire a bizarre drama that manages to combine paranoia, violence, beauty queens, gangsters, and lots of suffering regular Venezuelan citizens (and lots of happy Venezuelan gangster citizens).
A couple of relevant recent readings:
What Is Goldman Sachs Doing With Venezuela’s Gold? (Speculative)
*and the narrative/literary angle is how I justify blogging economics and Latin American news in this frivolous blog.
