Automatic updates get you data 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, 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.
The project evolved from web-based graphs to iOS and Android apps in mid-2016. Now, Venezuela Econ has some 15,000 users across the various platforms.
