    ”Rousseff wrote that the economy for 2016 will be “better than current predictions.”

    Based on what, the amount of psychotic drugs she is taking to stop her facing reality.

    She and Brazil will be very lucky if it's only as bad as presently predicted.

    Typical of Dilma (and the PT). She lied to get re-elected in 2014. When she could no longer hide the lies, she downplayed their negative effect. If one looks at the important economic indexes, it is easy to see that 2015 has been the worst year for Brazil in 20 years.....Now, beginning 2016 she continues to lie. At the end of 2016 she'll be telling the idiots who still support her socialist policies, her overspending, and her gross incompetence - not to mention all the stealing on her watch - that 2017 will be better. She just refuses to understand that she and the PT are the problem. Wait and see.
