News reports indicate that Venezuela is starting to install fingerprint scanners in supermarkets as a way of preventing ‘food hoarding’. Venezuela is experiencing widespread shortages of most foodstuffs including the most basic such as bread, flour and grains as well as an acute shortage of medicines.
Unable to buy imported food due to a plummeting currency and falling oil prices resulting in a lack of revenue, Venezuelans are becoming increasingly desperate.
President Maduro has accused Colombian food smugglers of buying up massive amounts of staples to sell back to people at vastly marked up prices.
The scanners that are being installed in stores are to prevent people buying more than their allotted quota as the implementation of rationing begins.
Not only will food be rationed, the government will confiscate your food and leave you with your “fair share”. The executive orders are already signed.
