    Very good performance by the agricultural sector and I do not remember any tax breaks or subsidies being involved.

    Only then will Brasil be truly in the big league that Dilma so desperately wants.

    I wasn't disappointed ;) , in fact I expect the “growth” to be lowered when they revise this figure in coming months/years. Brazil's just a boom and buster like Argentina, forever to be mismanaged
