3:24 am
president at least one and a half million people have fled political and economic crisis there and let's that's led to some venezuelans coming up with novel ways to make use of their failed currency asunder and kitty has more from on the colombia venezuela border. so often it's very difficult to explain just how far and how deep has the venezuelan economy fallen and the international monetary fund sense that by the end of the year inflation there could reach a million percent but what does it all mean one example is right here on the border with colombia this is the quest for family and what they have here is real business will earn money but this is so worthless that they're literally sowing it. with it they're making bags and wallets that they sell for pesos on the streets of colombia but how much was one of these bills works just five years ago when. it

was these bills five years ago. feed a family with you know nobody because they have no value they're actually quite impressively made they sell from three to seven dollars and the crisper family says the program has come to this to make ends meet all the countries hit by the two thousand and eight financial crisis germany has managed to stick on a me better than most the critics accuse it of being too strong pushing policies that wrecked other european economies largely reports. in the corridors of power in berlin there are reasons to be cheerful ten years ago the german economy was so well insulated that the big crash was never going to cause a crisis so much has changed in other european countries but not here in the first six months of this year alone the german economy around a budget surplus of over fifty billion dollars that's almost three percent of
3:26 am
germany's gross domestic product or any wealth it's the kind of figure that makes other countries either extremely jealous or absolutely furious it was the german government that demanded after the bank started to fall that the european commission impose new rules on countries like greece forcing them to adopt a hugely destructive tax raising powers in return for bailouts and loans a decade on stagnant economy is in huge unemployment levels of what's left the proceeds went to the banks not the people many economists hold germany directly responsible for bankrupting greece it is very anti democratic approach that is something that gives assurance to general politicians that there are rules and that they can be here too and that things will work out but then i think that kind of comfort is illusion it is defense germany would argue that if other countries have behaved in the right way in the first place then the wouldn't have been a problem most of the political class here bears few regrets about driving policies
3:27 am
which proved so controversial no absolutely not i think that was the only way the fact that we are successful in all these countries shows that this was the right way and it's like in the it's like in the private sphere. if you don't half there you are a free man and if you have have debt you have to listen to the persons who gave you the money. the one area which germany has suffered from. in recent years has been the rise of far right populism born partly from economics in poor areas but also from anger towards chancellor merkel's generous asylum policies for refugees this week though the german government announced it was devoting billions of euros to tackle long term unemployment a certain way of diffusing anger germany is able to make these choices in ways
