Brazil's GDP fared worse than almost any other major economy in 2015, contracting by 3.8%, according to the national statistics agency IBGE. Economic growth in the world's seventh-largest economy has fallen sharply in recent months, which was due partly to low commodity prices and sluggish global growth. Read full article

    How's the end of that commodity boom going, Brazil?

    Having a country full of natural wealth is useless if you have idiots running the show.

    The fools are the US and English companies that we or expel or nationalize. Including all NGO's.

    The sad joke of the socialist populism is finally going down and showing its true face: failure, corruption, poverty.

    All these South-American lefty `heros´ were as money-hunger as the `capitalist´ they vow to hate and fight.

    I hope it is the end of them. I hope we see them behind bars soon.

    “Brazil's government said the poor data had been expected and added that it was focused on boosting the economy this year. “We want 2016 to be a year of recovery for jobs, employment, income, with economic growth,” Labor Minister Miguel Rossetto said”.

    Miguel Rossetto is another filthy incompetent comunist in Dilma's service. He knows damned well, as does the fat cow, that 2016 will be a year during which the situation of the economy will deteriorate even further. But that doesn't stop them from lying. There isn't the slightest chance of things improving, just need to look at the numbers .

    @2 BRasshole
    Just fyg, because it is obvious that you have a distorted idea of your own importance : ' you' will not expel any companies, 'you' will not nationalize anything - for the simple reason your darling Dilma cannot afford to - but you will just keep on spewing your crap, which will get you nowhere.
    As to the NGO's you must be referring to, most are owned by petistas with the sole purpose of deviating money for the PT.... yes, they should be investigated and closed down.

    BRasshole, how did you like to see the LulaRat being dragged off for questioning ? I'm sure he shat his pants....

    It is necessary to isolate all the interests of the United States in Brazil. Expelling their companies. Their NGO's.

    The embassy of the United States and them consulates are massive spy dens that need to be cut off from Brazil.

    United States is an enemy country that needs to be treated as an enemy.

    Many Brazilians and Brazilian Industries are already leaving the country; in spite of a high rate of exchange.

    they took a wise decision!

    The Lula Rat, after leaving the Federal Police yesterday, went to the local headquarters of the stinking PT , and during his speech to all the PT cock-suckers he once again showed his true colours : a crazy dog, mas with rabies, who cannot bear being antagonized....he needs to be put down.

    As far as the politics & economy are concerned; Brazil is almost on par with Venezuela & Ukraine. Together; they now can start some scheme = BRICKS [BRICS] - even if it's for the namesake [= BRICS].
