    REF: “FREE” Trade:

    - DO you mean that the “Barriers are not YET lifted”?
    - So besides licking each others' ****'s; what ELSE are the “accomplishments” of the members - During ALL These Years?

    Funny, the Mercosul is the only free-trade agreement I've seen where barriers and tariffs is anything but 'free'. Not to mention that the rules are bent everytime one member can't keep their side of the deal...a good lesson in “how-not-to-do” things.

    True! The REAL “trick” is to learn from the mistakes of the others and PRACTICE what you learnt & preach. EXACTLY this is what's TOTALLY missing!

    I cannot vote for Bolsonaro , numbnuts, I live in SP....or don't you know that Bolsonaro is a Rio politician ?
    We all know who brasshole voted for.... Lula, twice, then for Dilma, twice, and he still didn't learn anything....but then again, you need a brain to learn.

    The entire South [Latin] America + Canada; if they unite by a Trade-Agreement, they can supply food products, minerals, machinery/equipment & many other products to the whole world - to the extent that the wealth generated just by the exports, may ALMOST eliminate the need to tax their citizens! But knowing how “efficient” and “honest” the politicians & the entrepreneurs in these countries are; almost all of the population will continue to pursue miserable lives - FOREVER.

    Those countries can't ALL be as corrupt as Brazil. But getting them all to sign a trade agreement is probably impossible anyway.

    Right....not ALL as corrupt as Brazil (in absolute terms) ...which stands out more because there is far more money to steal...
    They're perfectly capable of signing trade agreements, the problem is their lack of will to get rid of all barriers, as well as their reluctance to stick to the rules, at the first other words, they are not 'serious'.

    Behind EVERY “serious” agreement; there is either a bunch of crooks or a band of pathetic clowns - or BOTH!
