Some years ago in Nov 2009, an interesting issue of THE ECONOMIST commented the extraordinary development of the Brazilian economic area (read more).

Now in Oct 2013 some years later, a new article describes some new insights and questions former positive findings (read more). Without any doubt, the Brazilian government needs to reshape the economic frame towards clear investments in logistic infrastructure and industrial growth, avoiding further deindustrialization.

And the starting situation is not so bad – the actually 7th large economy receives appreciable cash inflow from commodity sales – an ideal situation for reinvestment. On the other hand and as a consequence, the high import taxes must be lowered, at least to enforce the needed and necessary industrial dynamic.

The end of the year is often a period to have a view at our trash boxes, our article collections and other stuff run ashore over the last year. Here is a small collection of worthy articles … the majority unfortunately in German:

Recently I’ve found also new developments in mobility, which are again worthy to have a look at. In 2007 I already read about a sportscar from TESLA, as you can see here. This producer will now present the car of the year 2013 with a range of unbelievable 480 kilometers (!!) – who is telling us stories about hybrid technology?. Please have a look at a recent video MOTOR TREND car of the year 2013 (English). By the way, the TESLA investors Mercedes Benz and Toyota are going to use part of the innovations in their new products.

Considering the ethanol technology used in Brazil and the All-In-One engines, one might think „OK this will not be of importance in Brazil for the next 10 years“ – read here about actual developments in Sao Paulo. Even innovations in the hybrid technology are under consideration.

Have Fun !!

Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year 2013

Is Dilma Rousseff the Anti-Merkel?

Brazilian Magazine Isto É has recently published an article comparing two of the most powerful women in todays international politics: Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff and German chancellor Angela Merkel. Both are being called the new „Iron Ladies“ in politics but, as the article states, going in opposite directions.

While Angela Merkel apparently has a lot more in common with the original „Iron Lady“, Margareth Thatcher, standing for a strict fiscal policy and budget cuts, Dilma believes that public investments are necessary for overcoming a „brutal recession“. In her speech during the last summit of Ibero-American leaders in Spain, past November 17th, Dilma criticized austerity as an instrument for recovering from the european economic crisis and recommended that Europe should not repeat the mistakes of Latin-American leaders, whose restriction measures under IWF’s pressure during the 80s and 90s have only led to an even worse recession. For Dilma, Europe should focus on growth, „exaggerated and simultaneous fiscal consolidation in every country is not the best response“ and budget cuts should not lead to even more reduction of social benefits for the population.

The brazilian Magazine illustrates its article with a picture of Dilma and Spain’s King Juan Carlos that means more than words could say: Dilma is holding Juan Carlos’s arm, while the King leans himself on a walking stick. Check it out here.

According to the newspaper „Estado de Sao Paulo“ Brazil again lost rank 6 in the list of the strongest economies in the world to Great Britain due to the weak real and world economic crisis. Brazil will gain it back only in 2016, according to the EIA – Economist Intelligence Unit.

Some months ago officials supported a weaker currency, as they argues about benefits for the increase of production factors. Considering the statement above, no one wonders that in the meantime officials from the central bank of Brazil argues that the Brazilian Real weakened too much (Businessweek – Bloomberg)
