    If true, this will be truly disparaging as a 30% civil service cut is about 30 to 40K people while a 15 increase of police is only 2 or 2.5K people.

    That will make the unemployed over 400K ppl if I have the numbers right that are held in line by 40 to 50K of direct employ/power of the FSLN and maybe 75 to 100K of those in lock step with the FSLN.

    Or,, he could just keep everyone on the payroll and pay them with Funky Cordoba. Order in a plane load of 500 and 1000 banknotes,, anything less will be TP shortly.

    A new digital currency, like Venezuela's Petro, might add enough confusion to buy some time. Of course, Nicaragua does not have petroleum to anchor the digital currency, but they do have beans.

    So, pay the government employees in digital fiat, the
    FRIJOL. At the current price of beans, a FRIJOL would be worth 28 cents. So, a teacher -as an example- would earn F$1250.
    Everyone keeps their job, even if their pay is worthless.

    Not to worry. The govmint has announced a new plan to heal the Nicaraguan family by returning to traditional religion.

    Several small, but problematic issues. Everyone over 40 has been to this Circus before. Funny Money will not fly. Let us see a year of drought and the Digital Frijole flops fast.

    Huge overhead and no income, even where lead floats that cannot work.

    January will be interesting.....

    Marx would be proud.

    Who needs s drought? Just sabotage a crop or smuggle beans from Honduras to manipulate the currency.

    We have been fortunate. I held my breath all Hurricane season. The droughts have been spotty. No big quake in years.

    My profession was Natural Disasters and the #'s we are way over due.

    Who comes to help??

    Will not be like Hurricane Felix when USMC was on ground in RAAN before Daniels support arrived.

    They'll still come, even with the NICA act. They just sent $10B to Mexico and CA to pay them to come to America and rant against the damn Yankee. I expect 99% of that will end up in the presidential coffers, but it's the thought that counts, right?

    Usually I would agree they will come, but I do not think they will.

    Take Trump however you like.

    Any 3rd world (Maduro land or Niclandia) will be so mathematically weak they might as well print currency on banana leaves.
