Mauricio is a serial entrepreneur from Venezuela.  He is the Co-Founder and CSO of Ledn. His perspective on financial matters is incredibly interesting because of his experience living through hyperinflation in his home country.  Most commentators in the west have a very academic view of inflation, Mauricio and his family have encountered it first hand.
