Venezuela is toast.
Severe food shortages, after the government enacts price controls and bakeries are only allowed to produce French bread and white loaves, made from government-imported flour.
But the government blames the bakers.
The Miami Herald reports (emphasis added)
Facing a bread shortage that is spawning massive lines and souring the national mood, the Venezuelan government is responding this week by detaining bakers and seizing establishments.
In a press release, the National Superintendent for the Defense of Socioeconomic Rights said it had charged four people and temporarily seized two bakeries as the socialist administration accused bakers of being part of a broad “economic war” aimed at destabilizing the country.
The National Superintendent for the Defense of Socioeconomic Rights (yes, that’s a thing) reportedly seized two bakeries and arrested four people. The Ministry of Supreme Happiness could not be reached for comment.
