      Ask the Brazilians farmers if this is so good……when quoting the prices in a weakening currency …the US$ !

      Fact being they get a lot less than the growth rate….when measured in Brazilian currency !

      As I said a few times, if you wish to show an astounding rate of growth, just measure everything in VEP (Venezuelian currency), one of the only currency in the world that has lost 60 % or so…… the last 4 years…..against the weak US$ !!!!!

      You will/could then really believe that Brazilians are the best exporters….in the world !!!!!

      Really amusing, that Brazil has already dollarized all their economic stats INVOLVING MONEY COMPARISONS….just to show HIGHER THAN FACTUAL GROWTH !!!!!

      Cheaters will remain cheaters …as long as they breeze !

      And Brazilians LOVE cheaters since they are no different.
      You could not live without them, since cheating is in your blood, genes, education, daily lifestyle.

      “From Russia with Love and From Brasil with Beef”. Good ole Ian, Sean and Matt would have been proud of the title of the new movie I want to make after reading this article.

      All the suggestions and criticisms about the title are most welcome. However, Ch.c is not allowed to make any criticisms, but ordered to play the part of Bloefield (?) without charging any money. Of course, he will be provided with a white cat (Made in Brazil).
