    So does this mean external investment to exploit national assets and to export the gains or the depth of the UK recession is the explanation to brazil becoming number 6 economy.either way were is the pay off for the majority of Brazilian(there is also predicted for there to be a rise in immigration).must have been a failure in planning somewhere?

    Not that I'm denying that we're having a slowdown - but much of the contraction in BNDES's investment portfolio is due to political decisions to reduce state participation in financing new ventures: a very unfortunate decision, I might add.

    The reasons do not explain 1/passing UK economy as a manifestation of Brazilian growth,which is 2/a result of national generated growth,and 3/sustainability is in the control of foreign capital.this form of economic activity is not new and doesn't mean that it is a good thing.probably UK capital being exported is the significant factor?
