Brazil: Dollar Inflow Falls Dramatically from US$ 85 Bi to US$ 5 Bi

Counting US dollar Brazil's flow of exchange (the sum of dollar inflow and outflow into Brazil) remained positive at US$ 7 million in the first week of December and accumulated US$ 5.397 billion this year.

The figures are much lower than the ones recorded during the same periods last year: US$ 2.660 billion and US$ 84.717 billion, respectively. The figures were disclosed today by the Central Bank of Brazil.

In the first five business days of the year, the financial account (recording of capital inflow and outflow at Stock Exchanges, investment in bonds, remittances of profits and dividends to foreign countries, foreign direct investment, among other operations) was negative at US$ 1.081 billion.

And the trade account, which includes balance of trade, advances on exchange contracts – ACC – and advance payment Advance on Export Contracts – ACE, ran a surplus of US$ 1.088 billion.

So far this year, the financial flow recorded a negative result of US$ 43.711 billion, as against a surplus of US$ 10.765 billion during the same period last year.

The trade account posted a US$ 49.107 billion surplus, as against US$ 73.952 billion in the same period last year. Exports totaled US$ 179.642 billion and imports reached US$ 130.535 billion. In the same period last year, the figures were, respectively, US$ 173.346 billion and US$ 130.535 billion.

    Economics
    This is just the economics of the entire issue. We are in an economic recession. Many countries will see an outflow of money, especially the dollar as the credit markets become even tighter. Foreign investment is always much worse.

    Ch.C is not going to take it lightly for your calling him a Jackass. He is absolutely ruthless and takes no prisoners. May God help you in your tireless efforts to domesticate him. I thought I would give you a friendly advice before getting off the battleground. All the best. 😉

    Nice work John
    See, this is the good stuff the Swiss Jackass always ignores because he has a very narrow-minded vision of Brazil.

    He just keeps pulling out the same old tired stats (how many times do we need to be told what the interest rates are in Brazil?).

    He loves repeating himself..Liars lie, cheaters cheat, blah, blah.

    You have a lot of nerve talking about others when your own countries principal means of wealth are your infamous Swiss Banks. Your country is rich off the illegal money of the most corrupt people on the planet.

    Stick to Economics because your moral high-ground is disgusting.

    You said it all ! I applaude.

    Falupa “Many countries will see an outflow of money, especially the dollar as the credit markets become even tighter. Foreign investment is always much worse.”

    So true. but from where will this outflow come ? Not only from foreigners as we constantly read, but also from locals who prefer safer investments than in their own countries !
    A simple example : from 1998 to 2002 Brazilians individuals and companies SMUGGLED ILLEGALLY the equivalent of over US$ 100 billion…..out of Brazil…..to Miami and New York banks. Nothing to do yet with what foreign investors withdrew LEGALLY from the country !

    Dont worry for Switzerland !

    1) In this World Meltdown, our currency stayed as one of the world best.
    2) In this World Meltdown, our stock market remains the MOST RESILIENT OF ALL THE DEVELOPED NATIONS…MEANING IT WENT DOWN THE LEAST !!!!!!

    3) And despite this World Meltdown, our unemployment rate is still below 3 %. Will our unemployment rate go UP ! Of course yesss !
    Lets be very bearish…and say it will go to 4 % ! That will still be one of the World Lowest !!!!!!! Not even half of the EU !!!!!

    Enjoy your cheap readings ! We will enjoy our wealth and still enjoy our 2,4 vacation trips (official stats – sorry) per capita…. outside our country.
    Of course on top of our inside country ski vacations !!!!!!!!
    But lets be bearish again…we might as well go from 2,4 to 2,2 or 2 vacations trips per capita….outside our country…yearly.
    Still far far more than others.

    In my view, the Brazilian TV Novelas will do a killing next year ! Even a dinner at a Pizzeria will become expensive for most Brazilians ! Here even part time illegal maids can affford such “luxury” one or twice a week ! They can even send money back home in Brazil or wherever they come from…to feed their family ! They also can afford to buy a car with a 3,5 % leasing rate.
    Better than in Brazil where the rate is 35 %….or 10 TIMES MORE !!!!!!

    Credit Crisis ? Credit Crunch ? In Brazil…yessss ! Talk to your Master Lula !!!!!
    There is Nooooo such things here. A friend just renewed his mortgage yesterday at 2,5 % for 5 years !!!!
    Better than in Brazil where rates are 13-15 %….if my basic maths is better than yours.

    LAUGH….LAUGH….LAUGH….LAUGH !!!!

    Brasil
    Os brasileiros acham que o mundo todo presta, menos o Brasil, realmente parece que Àƒ© um vÀƒ­cio falar mal do Brasil. Todo lugar tem seus pontos positivos e negativos, mas no exterior eles maximizam os positivos, enquanto no Brasil se maximizam os negativos. Aqui na Holanda, os resultados das eleiÀƒ§Àƒµes demoram horrores porque nÀƒ£o hÀƒ¡ nada automatizado.
    SÀƒ³ existe uma companhia telefÀƒ´nica e pasmem!: Se vocÀƒª ligar reclamando do serviÀƒ§o, corre o risco de ter seu telefone temporariamente desconectado.
    Nos Estados Unidos e na Europa, ninguÀƒ©m tem o hÀƒ¡bito de enrolar o
    sanduÀƒ­che em um guardanapo – ou de lavar as mÀƒ£os antes de comer. Nas padarias, feiras e aÀƒ§ougues europeus, os atendentes recebem o dinheiro e com mesma mÀƒ£o suja entregam o pÀƒ£o ou a carne.
    Em Londres, existe um lugar famosÀƒ­ssimo que vende batatas fritas
    enroladas em folhas de jornal – e tem fila na porta.
    Na Europa, nÀƒ£o-fumante Àƒ© minoria. Se pedir mesa de nÀƒ£o-fumante, o garÀƒ§om ri na sua cara, porque nÀƒ£o existe. Fumam atÀƒ© em elevador.
    Em Paris, os garÀƒ§ons sÀƒ£o conhecidos por seu mau humor e grosseria e
    qualquer garÀƒ§om de botequim no Brasil podia ir pra lÀƒ¡ dar aulas de ‘Como conquistar o Cliente’.
    VocÀƒª sabe como as grandes potÀƒªncias fazem para destruir um povo? ImpÀƒµem suas crenÀƒ§as e cultura. Se vocÀƒª parar para observar, em todo filme dos EUA a bandeira nacional aparece, e geralmente na hora em que estamos emotivos..
    VocÀƒªs tÀƒªm uma lÀƒ­ngua que, apesar de nÀƒ£o se parecer quase nada com a lÀƒ­ngua portuguesa, Àƒ© chamada de lÀƒ­ngua portuguesa, enquanto que as empresas de software a chamam de portuguÀƒªs brasileiro, porque nÀƒ£o conseguem se comunicar com os seus usuÀƒ¡rios brasileiros atravÀƒ©s da lÀƒ­ngua Portuguesa.
    Os brasileiros sÀƒ£o vitimas de vÀƒ¡rios crimes contra a pÀƒ¡tria, crenÀƒ§as, cultura, lÀƒ­ngua, etc… Os brasileiros mais esclarecidos sabem que temos muitas razÀƒµes para resgatar suas raÀƒ­zes culturais.
    Os dados sÀƒ£o da Antropos Consulting:
    1. O Brasil Àƒ© o paÀƒ­s que tem tido maior sucesso no combate ÀƒÂ  AIDS e de outras doenÀƒ§as sexualmente transmissÀƒ­veis, e vem sendo exemplo mundial.
    2. O Brasil Àƒ© o Àƒºnico paÀƒ­s do hemisfÀƒ©rio sul que estÀƒ¡ participando do Projeto Genoma.
    3. Numa pesquisa envolvendo 50 cidades de diversos paÀƒ­ses, a cidade do Rio de Janeiro foi considerada a mais solidÀƒ¡ria.
    4. Nas eleiÀƒ§Àƒµes de 2000, o sistema do Tribunal Regional Eleitoral (TRE) estava informatizado em todas as regiÀƒµes do Brasil, com resultados em menos de 24 horas depois do inÀƒ­cio das apuraÀƒ§Àƒµes. O modelo chamou a atenÀƒ§Àƒ£o de uma das maiores potÀƒªncias mundiais: os Estados Unidos, onde a apuraÀƒ§Àƒ£o dos votos teve que ser refeita vÀƒ¡rias vezes, atrasando o resultado e colocando em xeque a credibilidade do processo.
    5.. Mesmo sendo um paÀƒ­s em desenvolvimento, os internautas brasileiros representam uma fatia de 40% do mercado na AmÀƒ©rica Latina.
    6. No Brasil, hÀƒ¡ 14 fÀƒ¡bricas de veÀƒ­culos instaladas e outras 4 se instalando, enquanto alguns paÀƒ­ses vizinhos nÀƒ£o possuem nenhuma.
    7. Das crianÀƒ§as e adolescentes entre 7 a 14 anos, 97,3% estÀƒ£o estudando.
    8. O mercado de telefones celulares do Brasil Àƒ© o segundo do mundo, com 650 mil novas habilitaÀƒ§Àƒµes a cada mÀƒªs.
    Na telefonia fixa, o paÀƒ­s ocupa a quinta posiÀƒ§Àƒ£o em nÀƒºmero de linhas instaladas.
    10. Das empresas brasileiras, 6.890 possuem certificado de qualidade ISO-9000, maior nÀƒºmero entre os paÀƒ­ses em desenvolvimento. No MÀƒ©xico, sÀƒ£o apenas 300 empresas e 265 na Argentina.
    11. O Brasil Àƒ© o segundo maior mercado de jatos e helicÀƒ³pteros executivos.
    Por que vocÀƒªs tÀƒªm esse vÀƒ­cio de sÀƒ³ falar mal do Brasil?
    1. Por que nÀƒ£o se orgulham em dizer que o mercado editorial de livros Àƒ© maior do que o da ItÀƒ¡lia, com mais de 50 mil tÀƒ­tulos novos a cada ano?
    2. Que tÀƒªm o mais moderno sistema bancÀƒ¡rio do planeta?
    3. Que suas agÀƒªncias de publicidade ganham os melhores e maiores prÀƒªmios mundiais?
    4. Por que nÀƒ£o falam que sÀƒ£o o paÀƒ­s mais empreendedor do mundo e que mais de 70% dos brasileiros, pobres e ricos, dedicam considerÀƒ¡vel parte de seu tempo em trabalhos voluntÀƒ¡rios?
    5. Por que nÀƒ£o dizem que sÀƒ£o hoje a terceira maior democracia do mundo?
    6. Que apesar de todas as mazelas, o Congresso estÀƒ¡ punindo seus prÀƒ³prios membros, o que raramente ocorre em outros paÀƒ­ses ditos civilizados?

    The TRADE account posted a US$ 49.107 billion surplus, as against US$ 73.952 billion in the same period last year
    Something is Wrong. DEAD WRONG !
    In 2007 your trade surplus was NOT US$ 74 billion
    In 2008 your year to date trade surplus is NOT US$ 49 Billion

    Cheater always cheat, liars always lie, hiders always hide.
    And idiots always remain idiots : those believing the cheaters, liars and hiders !

    Simple as that !

    😀 😉 😀 😉
