New York Times: Venezuelans flock to Curacao to get their preferental dollars

March 13, 2008

The New York Times has this slideshow of how Venezuelans flock to Curacao to obtain their preferential rate dollars. Very pictorial, I have heard gripes from people from Curacao that we are making life miserable for them, because we empty their ATM’s of US dollars and there are periodic shortages. So now we also export shortages…

(Note added: I was not aware the slide show accompanied an article on the subject, thanks to “Gringo” for pointing it out in the comments)
