Well, I think the cost of living in Venezuela is extremely low and for me a Nigerian to reside in that country will be a great advantage in terms of the currency. I think I should start thinking about investing heavily in to the Venezuelan economy

I guess this country might be a decent place to retire based on the scenery, but the economy is pretty beaten up. It would be livable with a pension, but there are probably other countries with good prices that might be a bit more livable. Some of the pictures I have seen are amazing though.

Venezuela is a forgotten country other countries like Colombia and Peru are sending Venezuelans back by the many thousands because they contribute very little if anything at all except a financial burden upon other countries.

I want to move to Caracas... $3 is insane for an oil producing country but I guess now everyone is equal and there is no rich!

The average salary is around 3 dollars, not 300.

The bitcoin,was presented by Europe as a supposed savior to the devaluation of the euro and the pound values.Europe like the rest of the world is addicted to the usd and rightfully so due to security and performance.Afterall the United States is the richest place on earth with the most diverse economy.Few people want to face the facts but the world economy depends heavily on the usd.The United States could close the door on the world and not do business with any countries permanently. That's how rich the United States is. Tourism doesn't mean anything to the United States and it never has but instead just a kind gesture and nothing more. We have never visited the United States.

Caracas is extremely dangerous even exiting or entering the airport.

Too bad Caracas is so messed up and it'll never rebound.Numbeo you're wasting your time even giving general prices for Venezuela.Who else would want to live there, especially when the locals don't?Think about it logically.
