    Very Sustainable
    When will the government realize that economic growth cannot be built on expanding beef production throughout the amazon forest area. In the long run the problems and the environmental degradation caused might be more costly than the revenues made by the export of beef…however, the human rights issues (slavery) which are another problem caused by farmers will put a very negative image on brazil in the future.Enjoy your steak, while you don’t have to deal with the consequences.
