It took the international investment community
a while: For much of the past year, investors have assumed
that if Argentina were to default on its debts, Brazil would
follow suit. Now, with Argentina closer then ever to default,
Brazil's financial markets rose to
there highest level since Sept. 11th.
the debt to GDP ratio has deteriorated to about 57%, Brazil
still fulfills all the strict criteria to adopt the Euro,
the new European currency! Just imagine Italy and Belgium
have debt ratios close to or above 100 % !
The "Real" (Brazilian currency) in real terms is
now at a exchange rate close to where it was in 1991 when
Brazil experienced huge trade surpluses.
