    Did not increase borrowing costs! Petrobras did not take Western money after the downgrade! All borrowings have fixed interest rates independent of downgrade or not.

    New loans are made only with Brazilian and Chinese financial institutions where interest rates are within acceptable standards.

    Therefore, the downgrade was a blessing!

    You hope that the class actions involving Petrobras are minimal? Good luck with that, BP has just decided to set aside U$ S 20 billion for costs, wait and see what happens to Petrobras.

    Our interests are not in the United States. So it does not matter what you think or do.

    I'd better stay away. Others feel that staying close is ideal.

    @4 Would that be you and your gang of malcontents?

    You cannot isolate from the rest of the world so you have to live with that fact.

    @1 brasshole
    You sound just like asshole Lularat : when Brazil was awarded the investment grade by Moody's, Standard & Poors and Fitch, Lularat said : “At last, the world has realized Brazil is a serious country”. After losing it a month ago, the Lularat said ” who cares , we don't need it (investment grade)....We can do what we want with the economy....well, the PT definitely has done what it wanted : it screwed the economy . But, was the Lularat right both times ?
    C'mon you imbecile, tell us !
