Take physic, pomp


I have been informed by Bloomberg and Reuters (so far) that they did in fact report on the Venezuela unemployment figures on Wednesday 19th November. The information was not passed on to the open internet, but kept for customers who pay the monthly subscription for their service (about $1,200 or $1,500 per month if memory serves for the Bloomberg service, but I am happy to be corrected on that, too. Please advise).

In other words, the Venezuela unemployment figure is extra special information for extra special people, but they aren’t going to make it available to the wider world. That’s the job of others.

Kinda sums them up, I think.

Anyway, thank you both for the stuffy e-mails and…..apologies. And thanks for caring about this crappy little blog more than actually informing people about what’s going on in South America on the most basic of levels.
