The Vladimir Chelminski papers contain extensive materials relating to economic and political conditions in Venezuela from
the 1980s onward. The papers include many articles written by Chelminski for Venezuelan newspapers, as well as his book length
study of price controls. There is also a detailed record of the workings of the Caracas Chamber of Commerce, including minutes
of meetings and reports. Chelminski wrote summaries of many of his conversations with others on topics of economics and Venezuelan
politics, and these summaries are found in the papers.
For twenty-four years Vladimir Chelminski was the executive director of the Cámara de Comercio (Chamber of Commerce) in Caracas,
Venezuela, and an active participant in classical liberal circles around the country. He has written prolifically about economic
conditions and political developments in Venezuela.
