Socialist Disaster in Venezuela is Sending Economic Refugees into Prostitution

Nothing is more predictable than the destructive power of socialism:

Inflation in the crisis-stricken country of Venezuela is on track to hit 1.4 million percent by the end of 2018, according to the latest report from the International Monetary Fund.
The report, entitled “Outlook on the World Economy,” predicts that inflation will reach 1.4 million by December 31, 400,000 percent higher than what they forecast in June this year and over a hundred times faster than the estimate of 13,000 percent in January. . . .
In 2018, the Venezuelan economy shrunk by a staggering 18 percent, indicating a third consecutive year of double-digit decline that has led to the worst economic and humanitarian crisis in the entire region. . . .
Nicolás Maduro’s socialist dictatorship has responded to the economic catastrophe with a number of creative but ultimately ineffective solutions that has included seeking additional loans from allies such as Turkey, Russia, and China and creating its own national cryptocurrency known as the “Petro,” supposedly backed by the nation’s extensive oil and gold reserves.
Maduro’s solution to the hyperinflation crisis has involved repeatedly raising the country’s national minimum wage and taking five zeroes off of the Bolivar currency. . . .

It is impossible to exaggerate the extent of the man-made disaster in Venezuela. Thousands of people are fleeing to neighboring countries, including Colombia, where Fox News reports from one border town:

Both men and women are exposed to sex trafficking along the route from Venezuela to Colombia. According to several walkers, some women “chose” prostitution as a means to make money and earn rides along the way. And some heterosexual men “sell themselves on the gay market” for a little money.
Other women are manipulated or forced into giving “pimp types” their documents and identification cards, and are subsequently drawn into prostitution rings. That’s particularly the case in border areas, where many rebel and drug-trafficking groups operate. . . .
Girls as young as 14 line the Cucuta streets available “for hire,” earning around seven dollars “per service.”

Someone should ask socialist Democrats like Alexandria Ocasio Cortez if they are in favor of 14-year-old girls getting pimped out for $7 a trick, because that’s where socialism ultimately leads.
