Fully automated so faster than Bloomberg.



For the first time, Venezuela-watchers can witness the collapse of the local currency, soaring money supply and falling wages in real time — as well as historic data going back nearly half a century.

Venezuela Econ was created in January 2015 when Girish Gupta, a Venezuela-based journalist, wrote code to automate the acquisition, manipulation and storage of the country's economic data.

He had been surprised to see major news and data outlets — which charge their clients thousands of dollars a month — doing this manually.  Girish made simple, intuitive graphs to bring transparency to badly-collated government data and costly, esoteric professional services.

The project evolved from web-based graphs to iOS and Android apps in mid-2016. Now, Venezuela Econ has some 7,000 users across the three platforms.
