A litre of top-shelf Scotch whiskey in Venezuela's capital Caracas now costs one billion bolivars, equivalent to the sum earned by a minimum-wage worker in 16 years. Owing to the country's hyperinflation, a cup of coffee in Caracas now costs about one million bolivars. The inflation in Venezuela has climbed to over 60,000%, according to the source.
