There is only one way: sign free trade agreement with the BRICS and prevent speculative capital inflows in Brazil.Feb 16th, 2016 - 11:35 am - Link - Report abuse 0
The development of a common defense industry within the BRICS should be a priority against Western military threat.

Brasshole idiota, Brazil needs to gradually drop its protectionist ways with more than just the other BRICS (which are also mostly in a huge hole themselves).Feb 16th, 2016 - 02:17 pm - Link - Report abuse 0

Its struggles with corruption aside, the Brazilian economy also suffers from its disproportionate dependence on one fragile market: its own. Brazil’s massive economy — today the world’s seventh largest – is fueled overwhelmingly by domestic consumption. Consider the numbers: From 2011 to 2015, only 11.5 percent of Brazil’s GDP came from foreign trade — a stark contrast to Chile, where 33.8 percent of the economy is driven by foreign trade, or much larger Mexico, where 32.4 percent of GDP comes from trade beyond its borders.
Get a brain Brasshole!

Traditionally, neither in prosperity nor in crisis, there NEVER has been any balancing of the budgets - always spending more than the income.
In other words spending money which nobody knows from where it is going to appear; is a Tradition/Culture!
Gradually the dollar is leaving the world trade. And since ceased to be the reference currency for sovereign financial reserves in the world.Feb 16th, 2016 - 06:56 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
I predict a horror century to the United States and its Western satellites.
Brazil no longer use the dollar in intra BRICS trade. And now no longer use the dollar in trade with several other countries, including Iran.
Gentlemen, we are seeing the end of an era. The era of the United States and Western Europe.

BRasshole, where do you get your stupid ideas from ? You are grossly misinformed, and it's obvious that you are living in the past ; today, the BRICS is a dying concept. Brazil and Russia are already screwed, China is going through a drastic readjustment, and that leaves only India doing relatively well. So who is going to sign free-trade agreements ? If at all, perhaps the others, but the Brazilian government, with its enormous appetite for taxation, will never sign free trade agreements with anyone.
Gradually the dollar is leaving the world trade.........Wrong....again ; what is leaving world trade is Brazil. The USD is doing just fine, thank you. And talking of sovereign financial reserves, better known as international reserves, just one question : In what currency does Brazil keep its international reserves ??? Surprise, in USD !!!
You see BRasshole, you are full of crap and your predictions are anything but accurate.
The more a US$ values in R$; the exports from Brazil become more competitive in the int'l. markets.Feb 18th, 2016 - 10:26 am - Link - Report abuse 0
The bad news is that Brazil imports more than what it exports and for the want of a well-organized infrastructure, the exports are not being able to overtake the imports - in whichever currency.

Are the Brazilians ready for:
- R$ heading for US$ = 6 ?
- Official Declaration of some form of an “Emergency” ?
- “Collor-Style” Theft of the savings ?

Não há nada que se pode dizer da Dilma que possa ser entendido como elogio. Como elogiar um pedaço de merda ??
Quanto ao Collor, provou que de roxo o saco dele não tem nada....deve ser no máximo, amarelo. E, sendo aliado da Dilmona, não precisa dizer mais nada.
