    A good bank - well worth expanding through the region.

    Since 1992 when it was reconstructed as a proper bank conforming to the proper rules of private/privatised banking (rather than being a conduit for government largesse, etc) it has become a force in its own right .

    Go, BoB !

    What a sensationalistic article.

    “Brazil’s central bank is desperately trying to grasp the reins of inflation”

    Monthly inflation has been falling since February. I see no reason for hurry in lowering inflation. And I see no desperation in the CB's acts; in fact there's now more tolerance towards inflation. The CB is in fact expanding the time required to let inflation fall back to its 4.5% target to 2012. Under the previous inflation targeting regime annual inflation had to be kept at 4.5% for every year.
