The country's fair pricing authority seized the toys Friday from 3 Kreisel warehouses, Venezuela's largest toy distributor. Two company executives were detained on suspicion of promoting price speculation (aka capitalism). They have not been heard from since.
Agency director William Contreras claims the company under-reported its inventory in order to sell some toys at higher prices, but the company has not commented as their head commenter is unavailable for comment.
Socialist authorities said local supply committees [of their choosing] will be in charge of handing out the toys "fairly" to children.
Due to their socialism economy, the country has been in deep economic crisis with food, medicine and goods shortages. But at least now, the government can pretend to care about its people.
The GDP per capita in Venezuela is $15,891 US. Unemployment is above 17% and the average salary is around $20 a month, although the president, Nicolas Madura, makes $46,893 a year.
That's socialism for you.
