    But…but……
    this is a proof that Brazil SUBSISIZES nearly ALL Industrial sectors, including agriculture !
    And subsidizes GROW at a very fast pace !
    the Us$ 37 billion is the ADDITIONAL AMOUNT……NOT THE TOTAL AMOUNT !

    Then why criticize the developed nations subsidizing ONLY their Agriculture ?

    the answer is very simple : Cheaters always cheat, liars always lie and hiders always hide ! And and and….they always shoot in their own foot !

    End results…with proofs ?
    Just as simple : loans for cars at 30 %, 50 % for consumers goods and around 200 % for overdrafts ! Last but not least…..mortgages rates at 13-15 % in an inflationary environment of around 5 % !!!!!!!

    for Brazil…HIP HIP HURRAH, HIP HIP HURRAH !

    YOU CANT HAVE IT ALL…BY COMMON SENSE !!!!!
    A great self destructive economic model….in my secular view !
    Similar to when your “security experts” found very clever and secure to put fuel reserves tanks…at the end of the landing strip
    at the Congonhas airport. It was an accident waiting to happen. But no one could have predicted the day !
