Brazil Gets Ready To Screw Up Their Economy

Brazil central bank head 'ousted' as inflation rises

Brazil's hawkish central bank head, Henrique Meirelles, is to be replaced, a local newspaper has said.

His successor will be the central bank's financial regulation head, Alexandre Tombini, according to a report in Folha de Sao Paulo.

The widely expected move by recently elected President Dilma Rousseff may pave the way for interest rate cuts.

Yet data released on Tuesday showed that inflation is on the rise again, hitting 5.47% in November.

This is well above the central bank's year-end target of 4.5%.

That's right, cheap money and more debt is the way forward.

They're taxing the hot money:

Brazil’s Real Falls Most in Two Weeks After Inflow Tax Increase

Brazil, Latin America’s largest economy, raised the so- called IOF tax on foreigners’ investments in fixed-income securities to 6 percent from 4 percent. It also boosted the levy on money brought into the country to make margin deposits for futures market trades to 6 percent from 0.38 percent.

:D

You shouldn't believe everything these politicians say.

Capital outflows from 'emerging' nations far far outweigh inflows.

The government in place is of the Club Med type. Large public spending, high inflation to get rid of the debt and enable more spending.

Nothing to do with capital outflows/inflows. Their only gripe is that China is decimating their industrial base as it does with everyone else. The deficit spending is to compensate for that. Nothing changes, politicians are the same the world over.
