They are running out of beer in Venezuela, BEER! Marxism Fails Again, Is Bernie Sanders Paying Attention?

This should be impossible, but there it is: “Empresas Polar SA, Venezuela’s largest private company and producer of 80% of the beer consumed by Venezuelans, began to shut down its last operating beer plant on Friday, creating the latest scarcity in a country already crippled by shortages of many products.”

If you’re wondering how it is possible for a beer company with a nigh-universal in-country market share to go out of business, the Wall Street Journal will helpfully spell it out for you: Empresas Polar SA needs to import certain items into Venezuela in order to make beer.  The problem is, nobody takes the Venezuelan bolivar, because the Venezuelan bolivar doesn’t even make for good toilet paper these days.  And this next part is the important part: if Empresas Polar wants to get, say, American dollars with which it can buy products it has to go through the Maduro regime to get those dollars, because it’sillegal to get them any other way.
