    More Trade ??????
    What do you mean ?
    More trade…..in Brazilian favor ?
    But you already have a huge trade surplus ?
    Do you want it even larger ?
    What do you consider Fair Trade ?
    One way Trade ‘? YOUR WAY……of course ?

    And if Brazil is really for globalization and for more trade with poorer countries….why dont you buy import more from the countries poorer than you are ?????
    Because Brazil has a trade surplus with over 90 % of the countries they trade with, rich or poors, thus they cant pretend to be for globalization and in favor of less developed countries.

    Just full of contradictions….these Brazilians ?

    Just look at their own society where a few has everything and the majority has nothing. Afterall Brazil has the world highest poverty rate when compared with their GDP per capita……but they are in favor of more justice and fairness……in their favor….of course ? In favor of the minority elite……of course…..not in favor of wealth distribution…with their own poors….and even less for poors in other countries !

    Strange common sense !

    Brazil has far more trade barriers, duties and import taxes than all developed nations. But they want even more….and provide very little in return for what they call Fairness. Fairness being inexistant in their own society…..!!!
