Argentine President Alberto Fernández told his Uruguayan counterpart Luis Lacalle Pou his country did not want to be “a burden on anyone” when the latter called for signs of “flexibilization” on the part of Mercosur to allow member states to seek unilateral foreign trade agreements elsewhere without the bloc's approval.

    It is obvious that Argentina (and Brazil btw) will favor the protection of employment in the industrial | productive sector even at the expense of losing competitiveness.

    Other countries such as Uruguay or Paraguay will favor the development of commercial businesses (including but not limited to financial services)

    Hard figures show that except Ecuador, all South American Nations face deficits when trading with the US under one of possible trade agreements including FTAs (*)

    https://ustr.gov/countries-regions/americas/brazil

    For example, Brazil faces a 79% deficit in its trade with the US ($b 67.4 imports / $b 37.6 exports)

    (*) 2019 last pre-pandemic full year period

    MERCOSUR, as a trading bloc, should be executing a planned investment deployment to have a balanced distribution of factories / production facilities in countries-members.

    Thus guaranteeing a larger intra-block market for countries-members to acheive volume scale as it is the case within the EU.

    That is the precondition to start opening economies, otherwise competition will surely crush local employment.

    The problem is that in South America, the private sector lags behind public policies instead of taking the lead.

    And we all know how important the economy is to be left in the hands of the politicians, as this example shows...

    (This is a copy of my most recent post on the other active topic — but with the corrected URL link)

    You once was critical of my usage of française — but it reflects our household where three languages are daily spoken.

    Madame DeFarge is a highly complicated, intensely beautiful, remarkably enchanting and extremely volatile Catalan-Occitan that has come to the conclusion that the lockdowns are not effective as a solution to this pandemic.

    In a comparison between the UK and Sweden (that have two completely approaches to the pandemic) the mortality rate is nearly the same.

    https://fee.org/articles/sweden-saw-lower-mortality-rate-than-most-of-europe-in-2020-despite-no-lockdown/

    We think its a wise and prudent decision to socially isolate on a voluntary basis — but enforced lockdowns are a violation of our human rights.

    Although I really don’t know much about Laurence Fox and his campaign for Mayor of London — but I support his views about lockdowns.

    ¡Saludos!

    How is it that a country such as Brazil is unable to compete? We recently purchased a small car in the US that was imported from India! At 1 : 5, and worse, Brazil should be exporting cars to the US and the rest of the world. The problem, in one word, is taxation. Brazilian manufacturing at the source is highly competitive in both price and quality, but after multilayer taxes, the advantage disappears. Likewise, Brazilian commodities are extremely well positioned at the points of origin in the interior. Again, the problem can be summed up in one word: infrastructure. Soya produced in the interior of Mato Grosso do Sur looses its competitive advantage by the time it reaches shipping ports due to dismal, antiquated, inefficient and corrupt transportation. Finally, I have it on good direct authority that agricultural trade to the US is blocked with thinly veiled environmental and health rules that masquerade for trade protectionism.

    In the bitch’s latest little rant you con see she’s inebriated stringing a gathering of worthless quotes in a drunken stupor. It makes me laugh in her incompetence.

    Watching this morning’s sun rise from behind the Andes is always marvelous!

    Apparently there have also been adverse reactions to the Johnson & Johnson vaccine: https://nypost.com/2021/03/30/mans-skin-peeled-off-in-reaction-to-johnson-johnson-covid-vax/?utm_campaign=SocialFlow&utm_medium=SocialFlow&utm_source=NYPTwitter

    I took a stroll over to the old empanada lady to buy today’s lunch as well as my mid-morning marraqueta to enjoy with nectarine jam and butter with fresh brewed coffee.

    My plan is to gather some ripe fruit from our orchard — including Angelino plums and Stark Sunglo nectarines along with some large Black Krim tomatoes and fully mature Italian red peppers (corno di toro) which I love roasted.

    Then in the mid afternoon — to return to chaos in Chicureo.

    It’s a beautiful day here in Panquehue and soon I’ll be departing for Chicureo for the Easter celebration with our extended family.

    Terence Hill is actually a 40 year old living with his mother in Utah. He has a YouTube channel easily searched under ‘Skippy the Virgin’ which is depressing.

    I haven’t previous linked the videos — as I find Terence Hill’s life incredibly pathetic and dull, but it’s the same Terence Hill identity here on MercoPress.

    Jack Bauer Proof less & Truth less

    “I haven’t linked the videos as I find” Hmmm the old no proof, no truth

    “Meanwhile” From one who has been outed as a consummate liar. I rely on what I know to be actually true. Chicureo “Although I've defended Pinochet despite his regrettable actions...I support nationalists that are willing to protect their nation ...Just giving the vote to women has resulted in our current nightmare.”

    I really enjoyed my conversation with the two Carabinero officers on the return to Chicureo. I saved them at least two hours in their trip.

    There is nothing better than taking a couple of relaxed days away from an anxious woman on the edge — as long as I behave on my best behavior and precisely obey all her commands. (After Sunday — I can safely return to my normal self.)

    The final food and cut flowers orders are arriving tomorrow and the gathering has continued to increase in confirmed guests.

    The lamb will be my largest task — which we’ll prepare in our garden quincho: https://youtu.be/0RpQhavfQZA

    After watching this video — I’m also going to roast a salmon filete nailed to a cedar plank.

    Appearing just in time to get a word in before MP closes comments...

    Good to see that you are a believer in “discretion is the better part of valour”.....this attitude, along with plenty of good wine, usually leads to a long, healthy life.....

    Salmon nailed to a cedar board ?.....tell me how it tastes.....the salmon, not the board...

    Sad to see that the F*ckwitt's deplorable living conditions are affecting his small brain....the smelly creature STILL hasn't realized that I have nothing to do with :

    “I haven’t linked the videos as I find” Hmmm the old no proof, no truth”.... his dementia is progressing quickly.

    Would just like to add a comment regarding FortHay's post way above : the taxation here is indeed what kills Brazilian competitiveness.....but the question is WHY .....because the taxes need to finance an enormously inflated and highly inefficient State (specifically all 3 branches of government - the executive, legislative, judiciary- on on levels, Federal, State and Municipal), which costs hundreds of billions every year, not to mention the institutionalized corruption, incompetence and waste. The flies may change but the s#!t is always the same !

    By FortHay's suggestion that you and the F*ckWitt get a room, it is clear he has no idea that the F*ckwitt is self-sufficient when it comes down to sexual encounters.....besides being in the middle of a transgender process - no idea in which direction - he is the king, or queen, of the inflatable dolls.....Long Dong Silver and the Lulla dolls being his favorites.

    Good luck with the lamb !
