    yeah but brazil does have ways of getting its money
    not out of resources, never out

  • ch.c.

    Interesting….BUT….ALL WRONG !!! SIMPLE !
    Since when does a country (except the USA…of course) has its accosunting in US$ ????

    Every country make its calculations in LOCAL CURRENCY…and then convert it to US$ for reference purpose ONLY.


    The Balance of Power works very nicely, you export more in US$ but receives as counterparty a depreciating currency !

    It also happens that despite the price of grains went up sharply…in US$…..your grains farmers are still struggling.

    Yess input prices of products, such as fertilizers, pesticides, fongicides, fuel, transportation costs literally ZOOMED UP….EVEN IN
    Just read and refer to specialized Brazilians agricultural sites or news in local medias !!!!!!!
