Although the foreign exchange adjustment authorized on February 8 guarantees additional income to the Treasury, the Venezuelan Government has other sources of funds available that are enough to cover additional credits in the first half of the year.

One of such sources is the budget surplus (USD 9.06 billion) of 2012, which are budget funds that were not executed. 

In general terms, any surplus is deposited in different parallel funds administered by the Treasury Office. Funds are allocated based on the additional operations that may be necessary.

Since early January, the Executive Office began using such resources. Unlike other periods, early in 2013, the government increased expenditure and took on additional credits financed via parallel funds.

To date, the National Assembly has approved some USD 1.17 billion, and this figure may grow upon this week's additional operations.

Whose victim am I?

They are marching in step to the same tune. There is a coordinated effort to position the idea. The Twitter hashtag  #YoSoyVictimaDeLaGuarimba (I'm a victim of "guarimbas", or protest barricades) can be read on all pro-government Twitter accounts, including those of the ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), the National Assembly's Press Office, the state-run food distribution network PDVAL, state airline Conviasa, the Venezuelan embassies in foreign countries, radio stations and the huge media network responsive to the Government's interests and messages.
