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, physics graduate, and software developer, 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 — who charge clients thousands of dollars a month — doing this manually. As well as automating the process, Girish made simple, intuitive graphs to bring transparency to badly-collated government data and costly, esoteric professional services.

Venezuela Econ is free to download and use. A subscription to the app, for $1.49 a month or the equivalent in your local currency, will grant you access to further indicators. Your iTunes account will be charged once purchase is confirmed. Subscription automatically renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24 hours before the end of the current period. You can manage your subscription and turn off auto-renew from your iTunes account settings.

Excellent way to keep up


To keep up with the economic calamity the Venezuelan people are enduring. The app features important indicators of commerce that can be read at a glance. Handy for Venezuela watchers but likely a nightmare for those living under the present dictatorship.

Well presented info


Most relevant information on Venezuela's economy on one app. I like the design and colors. Info is clear and up to date. The most relevant indicators are there: fx, oil, reserves, and inflation.

Excellent resource on the Venezuelan economy!

If reviewed, prob didn't like

Excellent resource for economic info on the volatile situation in Venezuela. Wish there were simple, clean interfaces like this for more country-specific economies around the world.
