What is happening with the Venezuelan economy for some years is something totally alarming; If we take into account the movement in food prices in recent weeks, there is no human explanation of how a people can survive this tragedy.
In my personal opinion, it is further evidence of the existence of a God who takes care of us from the heavens using earthly sources for our sustenance. Of course, for science and economists this has an explanation beyond faith.
What I share with you are only data of a superficial investigation that I carry out, inspired by some numbers that my friend @juanmolina left in a comment that he made to a publication that he made with the account @hope.venezuela.
The data I share below can be found on the Internet, in any news portal. My intention is to put into context the current reality of the Venezuelan who decided to stay or did not have the opportunity to emigrate.
According to official figures this is the percentage that reached the accumulated inflation in 2019, in a period between January and September of last year.

According to the IMF these are the real figures of inflation in Venezuela for the year 2019.
The common Venezuelan understands the economy as follows
More than 4.6 million
It is the estimated number of Venezuelans who have left the country in recent years, seeking welfare for their family.
More than 650,000
According to the United Nations, it is the number of Venezuelans who have applied for official asylum in some country in the world.
According to the IMF annual report, this is the percentage of unemployment present in Venezuela for 2019, according to the projection, it is believed to reach 47.9% in 2020.
It is approximately the minimum monthly salary in Venezuela, added to $ 1.88 more for food bonus, which adds:
What would be the approximate integral salary of a common Venezuelan.
309,000 million barrels of oil.
Venezuela is the first country with proven oil reserves in the world, followed by Saudi Arabia, which has 266,005 million barrels of proven reserve oils, thirdly Canada with 169,000 million barrels.
For many it is inexplicable (including me), that a country with the oil wealth that our country has, not to mention gold, gas or other minerals and natural resources, may be living the misfortune that ours lives.
What happened to our economy? Why do we get where we are? ... And the worst of the case because we keep falling?
This is the current reality of our economy, they are numbers and figures that you find in any Internet portal, and they reflect the serious crisis that our beloved Venezuela is experiencing, we all pray that this will improve and the recovery and prosperity desired may come.
