    just a kind of --borrowing manipulations--through

    False, that is for so far the case in Europe (PIIGS), in the UK and the US..bubble explosion of manipulation.
    The growth in South America is pure by (Majority) Asian demand and strong domestic growth (Brazil, where credit is still difficult to receive, I guess they learned the lesson from up north and haven't forgot their past of dealing with hyperinflation)

    Inflation is a concern, where isn't that, but in some countries it's a data manipulation (Argentina), currency manipulation (the US is the biggest currency manipulator and not China) and in some countries demand grows faster than supply, and where they have to work more efficient to combat that problem (Brazil is an example).
