    :D The Brazilian exports registered in August, the second best monthly balance of the year, with sales of U.S. $ 19,747 billion. According to Welber Barral, Secretary of Foreign Trade of the Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade, exports from January to August totalled U.S. $ 130843 billion, a growth of 29.3% over the same period of 2007, "above, so , The global average growth of 15.3% per annum. "

    Among the highlights in exports are gasoline (121.4%), alcohol (94.1%), oxides and hydroxides of aluminium (74.2%), tractors (48.2%) and aircraft (35.8%).

    Dave it might help if you read and write in Portuguese so you can understand what is really going on in Brasil.

    Dave, your talents are wasted on this forum. Someone should get in touch with Zorra Total or Tom Cavalcante. But please promise me when you're famous still keep posting because you really do make me laugh.

    We need some decent theater in Natal-perhaps Dave can put on a Carry On production .

    Dotty, I think "Carry On" is a bit too high brow for Dave. Unless ofcourse it was "Carry on Adam Smith and other economic geniuses ".

    If we can move on from the bickering (always wanted to say that because before I put Dotty on ignore, I was heavily involved in the bickering myself):

    "James M. Roberts is the Research Fellow in Freedom and Growth at The Heritage Foundation's Center for International Trade and Economics.

    As the Research Fellow in Freedom and Growth, Roberts' primary responsibility is to produce the Index of Economic Freedom, an influential annual analysis of the economic climate of countries throughout the world. The Index is co-published by Heritage and The Wall Street Journal. Roberts also studies economic and political issues in Latin America and Europe and weighs in on development assistance and nation-building debates.

    He is fluent in Spanish, French and Portuguese. "

    Ok so basically, having read his bio and the article in Veja, the ranking he's talking about is economic freedom - aka wealth distribution and the ability to set up companies in Brazil.

    So while the wealth distribution in Brazil is one of the worst (anyone doing minimal research into the market would know this already), it is totally unrelated to International Trade Growth, which was the issue this was posted in reply to on the other thread which may be why Dave was saying that he was annoyed that the reply had nothing to do with the issue at hand.

    Interestingly enough, Mr Roberts also is quoted as saying that Brazil is a good example for the other South American countries to follow.

    Here is what Dotty was talking about..


    Index of Economic Freedom


    The above report by Heritage is no surprise for those of us on the ground here and live this reality on a day-to-day basis. And these are the realities for brazilians, being a foreigner and having a business is even more complicated with even more barriers, some written and others not.

    As far as Brazil being a "good example" for other S.A. countries to follow, I would think that one would be concerned with the moral dilemma of having millions of your countrymen classified as under-nourished or "threatened" from a lack of nutrients while exporting record numbers of beef, soy, and the like.
