The president of the country Nicolás Maduro predicts increase in prices for the Venezuelan oil to 90 dollars for barrel. If it happens, Brent will fly up up to 100 dollars.

Photo: Mikhail of Fomichev/TASS The other day the president of Venezuela Nicolás Maduro has predicted growth of cost of barrel of the Venezuelan oil to 90 dollars. As she is tied at the price to the Texas WTI, for the Brent grade by which Russia is guided, it will mean the price about 100 dollars. The most interesting that Maduro the policy promotes increase in the oil prices much. How? About it is in Georgy Bovt's comment. The Venezuelan economy as a result of mad experiments which were made with it at first by Hugo Chávez, and then his successor former bus driver Nicolás Maduro has appeared not just in crisis — she endures accident. Already both the UN, and the Organization of American States sound the alarm as the country stands on the verge of accident already humanitarian. Since 2015 when the world prices for oil have fallen, from the 32-million population of the country 2,3 million from her have run away. In daily different ways Venezuela is left from 5 thousand to 15 thousand people. And it is frequent even without passports. Colombia has agreed to accept even such refugees recently.
