In this conversation, I speak with Javier Bastaro, a journalist for Cointelegraph, based in Caracas, Venezueala about hyperinflation, dollarization, the diaspora and the political, economic and human crises in Venezuela.

Will Venezuela turn into the new Cuba? How bad did things get in 2016? How deep is the current crisis that Venezueala is facing?
