    REF: “Brazil to lift restrictions”: Removing the red-tape and the bureaucracies ALWAYS help in encouraging the Business-Environment - provided the misuses are totally avoided. Can Brazil do THAT?

    Good question...but if they don't go through with it (lifting the restrictions), how are we going to find out ? On the other hand, misuse of all things that are public, and private, already seems to be a chronic characteristic of Brazilian culture....foreigners investing in Brazil will be the least of its problems...

    If PB is not allowed to sell BR Distribuidora, they aren't going to get the cash they need for investments....the 'sindicato dos petroleiros' is just a communist-ridden union, that is only interested in maintaing the status-quo, or State-ownership.....otherwise, and they know it, if the BR is privatized, they'll lose their jobs - because at the moment there is just too much deadwood floating around in the company...

    Hi, Jack!

    1º: The Pre-Sal Fossil Fuel Reserves may be “HUGE” but it costs much more to access the reserves and that makes the crude oil extremely expensive than the average market price.
    2º: The Global Trend is towards the FALLING oil price OR maintaining it low [below average].
    3º: Countries such as the USA will soon be the LARGEST exporters of oil & gas [SHALE]; which cost well below the average prices.
    4º: The “NEW”, Unconventional, Green, & Renewable fuels are gradually becoming more common, more abundant and are cheaper than the “normal” fuels.

    The uses of such energies are gradually getting global acceptance, are recommended, favorable and more beneficial to the environment.
    5º: IN SHORT; there is a diminishing demand for the “conventional” oil on one hand and on the other hand, the supply is constantly increasing - by many folds.

    In spite of all the “negative aspects” which are mentioned above; IF AT ALL Brazil is “somehow” able to sell - GET RID OF - these assets [which in reality are the BIGGEST liabilities now]; it will NEVER be:
    - At the right/fair price
    - without some kind of a scandal involved!

    Hence; Brazil’s Black-Gold “fortune” = The New-Found “riches” = FOOL’s Gold:
