    “Brazil central bank admits interest policy has not been effective in fighting inflation” !!!!!!

    The hell it hasn't and the reason is very simple to understand: there is NO cohesive fiscal policy in place in Brazil.

    Various ad-hoc attempts to paper over the cracks and direct actions that can only end in tears [remember DumbAss instructing the banks to loan to deadbeats OR ELSE?] have all done the damage anybody with half-a-brain could have predicted.

    Childish actions from the Rulers of SA: why does nothing ever change?
