Paging Leopoldo Carnevali

Quico says: So Chávez's announcement that, tomorrow, he will unveil a series of "economic measures" (socialistese for "paquete", apparently) sent me scrambling back to this thread from last October, when Juan Cristobal encouraged y'all to place your bets on the exact date of the looming devaluation.

Almost everybody placed the devaluation way too early (with most predictions clumping around late December or January) but sporadic commenter Leopoldo Carnevali placed his bet on March 20th. Mr. Carnevali, please come forth to claim your prize.
