Basically, the people who originally voted for Chavez, which were classes C,D and E, are currently the worse off, they are literally starving, scavenging food from trashbags. It's unbelievable it's gotten this bad.
Classes A and B pretty much had their kids leave the country (huuuuge brain drain), parents have mostly stayed behind, their properties are currently worthless and everyone is worse off, it's been 20 years of productivity lost.
Off course Chavistas and the Bolibourgeois are incredibly wealthy, I'm talking in the hundreds of millions, and a handful of billionaires that have ransacked the country.
Just as an example of prepared person who fled: I was a lawyer in a top law firm in Caracas and was doing quite just fine, but the lack of safety drove me away. I left for Spain, got an MBA and currently run a small company I started with a partner 5 years ago. I have no intention of going back permanently in the near future as I do not want to risk my daughter's or wife's life, even if Maduro is ousted, it will be a tough recovery, a lot of crazy ass people and a lot of people not willing to work waiting for government handouts (20 years of Chavismo caused this).
I'm proud of my countrymen for putting up a fight and I hope Venezuela is freed from this CUBAN led dictatorship. And again, I hope none of you have to go through this, not even Reisner.
The demand for vehicles was there, what killed all factories was the controlled exchange rate, the govt kept one exchange rate for Govt and Govt friends and another for everyone else. So basically a Chevy Cruze would end up costing 30,000$+ and Chevy may even incur in losses as it had to import certain parts and the Govt wouldn't pay the $$ back...
