Former Environment Minister Marina Silva, one of the two main contenders in Brazil's Oct. 5 presidential election, said on Thursday that, if elected, she will not embark on any adventure in economic policies. Read full article
Dumbass Dilma is an economist!!!!
Ha, ha, ha, ha. That explains a lot.
President Dilma is an Economist ?
That is news here. Since when ?
Antonio Palocci Filho yes, Guido Mantega, yes, but Dilma ? No.
She is known here as an appointee-designate from her former role as Chief in Staff to former President Lula. Up to that time she was not even a member of the PT, and joined only to obtain the PT blessing which ensured her election.
At least it sounds sensible what Marina says, in comparison with Dima who has no idea
Ola Tik Tok -
Oh, President Dilma has an idea.
Her problem is that she cannot sway far from the aims and goals of the PT in contrast to what she would like to accomplish on her own.
She also must defend her past administrative actions, and decisions she made as Chief of Staff to former President Lula.
The recent Petrobras scandal for example, is not completely accepted by majority of our citizens absolving President Dilma of any and all blame or involvement. When you are at the helm of any ship, you need to keep the crew and passengers happy and safe at all times.
Unless of course you are in Argentina, where the logic of the Costa Concordia applies.
Marina is making the right noises, but the truth is if they open up the Brazilian economy the protected industries will collapse. She won't be too popular then.
Yes but I suppose Brazil has to bite the bullet some time?
The longer the correction is left the worse will be the result, you only have to look at the UK for an example of 'death by Unions' and 'socialist' government.
If you 'google DumboAss, appears she did eventually graduate in Economics, but she never concluded the MBA, which she claimed she had, as per her curriculum when she was Minister....and she only admitted she had lied when the Press investigated and exposed her lie...in fact, the University claims she was never even matriculated in the MBA...Just goes to show what a dirty liar she is, and the type of crap we've got for President.
@6 The Chilean perspective
If the cost of opening the economy is that a few protected companies collapse, so be it. It's the only way those companies, if they somehow manage to survive, will ever become competitive...and the only way that the industrial sector, as a whole, will become strong enough to survive in the globalized world........anyway, that's a problem to be faced later....first of all, we've got to get rid of Dilma and the rest of the 'gang'.
