    Who can compete with the US Treasury and the Federal Reserve?
    Nobody can compete with those gangsters. They don't like to compete and they can't, so it's better for them to be manipulators (print unlimited worthless digital money, lend it for close to zero procent, and manipulate the bond market to keep interest low by QE1, 2 and god knows what other name they will use for QE3).
    Wanna beat them, dump your T-bills (stealthy), buy physical silver and gold, like China. Brazil is alreayd doing business outside the dollar, what is good. Do better, by not accepting visa/master cards from tourists who enter your nation. The more they use it, the more those banksters can print, in other words you keep the beast alive.

    There is only one possible strategy for success:
    protect markets against excess foreign imports through tax; control 'dumping',
    assess the best products in any product range and then (whether it be a pharmaceutical drug, an electric drill or a giant road-laying vehicle), through home production, match or improve on the quality and produce in sufficient quantity to get economies of scale.
    Then, sell throughout Mercosur using the price advantage.
    The import tax (presently of 60% ) should take care of the rest.

    Most of this is (apparently) being done, apart from the home 'world-quality' build.
