    Brazilian central bank insists on the need to limit pension spending

    “I believe you can’t escape from carrying out reforms at some point,” Goldfajn told Senators. “The earlier it’s done, the better.”

    Brazil’s lawmakers can’t duck their responsibility to pass belt-tightening measures, central bank President Ilan Goldfajn told a Senate hearing in Brasilia this week.
