    Capital flight? MercoPress foreign capital speculating in the stock market is only 10% (September/2015). The capital that wanted to escape already fled long ago.

    We will take steps to ensure that this “capital” does not return to Brazil.

    MercoPress also forgot to say that it was held the presidential veto to campaign donations made by entrepreneurs and therefore the PSDB and DEM (two political parties of the extreme right) will be bankrupt soon.

    The home crowd MercoPress, Wall Street, City of London and analysts linked to speculative capital as Mr Cameron Combs is great for Brazil to return to a country where speculation reign. And that will never happen to my beloved Brazil.

    Viva BRICS !

    Brasshole. Who do you work for, the PT propaganda company?
    Congrats to socialism and twats like Dilma and Lula before her...
    Brazil is an inefficient sinkhole
    Read the quote .....“Brazil has so much potential,” says Osmari de Castilho Ribas, the terminal's director. “We should be far more connected to the world than we are.”
    Yet your moronic idea is to shut Brazil off from the world. Idiot.

    Titica, do you are crazy? What has to do what you said, or even the article you showed with what I said?

    I am against speculative capital that inflates and deflates our assets artificially at will of the international speculators (included R$).

    I am in favor of productive capital, as long as that capital is not dollar because the dollar is leveraged to infinity and losing confidence quickly.

    I took a trip to santa catarina in 2011 to see the boom story with my own eyes. Thats where i saw a state where everything operated in spite of dilma's party and the pt never had support. Where successful business owners said they left brazil in 1994 during a crisis and there was nothing preventing that again. The reuters article in comment no. 2 sums it up. 0 benefit from devaluation because chile and colom ia currencies are in free fall.. China is slowing. The pt were opportunist like the kirchners. It's a shame we have to be reading about a third world crisis in this article. From the successful businesses and the people behind them in santa catarina... Theres an engine of people that never believed in the “social advances” or poverty reduction by the pt. Just an increase of drugs, violence and corruption.

    Brasshole you are a moron, The Trade-Weighted US Dollar has risen almost 19% over the past 18 months - the fastest pace of increase on record - and is now at its highest level since 2003.
    Obviously no loss of confidence in US$.....
    And if you want investment in productive assets here in Brazil then to receive investment you need rates of return equal to or better than comparable investment opportunities elsewhere, and because of the ballsed up situation of the Brazil economy that isn't happening a lot here. If you had implemented better policies, plans and opened markets this balls up would have happened much less.
    I bet you have an undisclosed US$ bank account somewhere you dirty lieing thieving PT scum

    @1 BRasshole
    “We will take steps to ensure that this “capital” does not return to Brazil ”.

    'who' is 'we', asshole ?? you, and who else ?

    With regards to the prohibition of anonymous, as well as corporate donations to election campaigns, I say it is about time. Ironically, for taking a political stance against such donations - in order to try to “appear” to be doing the right thing - Dilma and the PT have just shot themselves in the foot ; In the last three presidential elections, the PT has been the largest beneficiary of such donations, not to mention the illegal funds received from corruption in the State-run companies.
    Now, the petista idiots will have to stick their hands in their own pockets if they want to support their 9-fingered toad and his confused pupil, and will have to identify themselves. Good news, eh BRasshole ??
