The withering away of the ration book

Penultimos Dias publishes a Ministry of Internal Commerce resolution (pdf) indicating that the libreta de abastecimiento, the monthly household ration book that provides food and other items at highly subsidized prices, will drop a series of personal hygiene products as of January 1.

The products will be available in state stores, and the resolution sets their prices in pesos.

The “orderly elimination” of the libreta had already been announced, and is apparently proceeding.
