    Paraguay's growth is derived from the massive Brazilian investments in that country.

    The cases of Peru and Colombia are the heavy investments of foreign funds in the stock market. Has little to do with increased production or generation of the labor market. This will cause problems in the future, bearing in mind that these securities markets are extremely small and can not provide liquidity in the event of volatility.

    The case of Brazil is unique. Most of the foreign funds invested in stock markets have been away from the country taking with somewhere around 100 billion USD. Financial GDP of Brazil is taking a sharp drop this year. However the external accounts remain balanced through the highest level of exports and FDI, in addition to the sharp reduction of Brazilian spending abroad and drastic reduction of imports.

    Uruguay and Argentina are economies closely linked to Brazil.

    I know absolutely nothing of Chile, but I know they are not growing well.

    MercoPress is a media corrupted by Western speculation.

    The article is a report from a Spanish ...(HISPANIC)..source. If you don't like it...tough titty. You fall back on your usual's a plot by the west to undermine our economies.

    How come you can suddenly write in grammatical English without pointless videos about the Wermacht. I presume their has been a change of shift at Troll Central.

    Brasshole - Pacific Alliance countries are doing better because they are implementing policy to help efficiency and involve themselves in global value chains. They realize they must compete in the world. The others mostly want to hide behind socialist dreams that never work because there is no such thing as a free lunch.
    Brasshole you are such a twat with your excuses, when will you and Brazilians in general learn to take responsibility for the shit of your own making.

    I cannot see any evidence that MercoSur is expanding, Uruguay certainly isn't due to The Dark Country and The Brazil Nuts.

    @1. Probably best if you put a bullet through the empty space between your ears. Or go for a quiet contemplative walk where someone can murder you.
