A recent research from HSBC found out that (surprise surprise) currency wars are on the rise as of late and produced this rather useful chart to indicate which countries are the most (and least) active in this scenario.

Some of the strongest concerns have been expressed in emerging economies. In particular, Brazilian Finance Minister Guido Mantega made the headlines in 2010 when he complained about the surge in the real. But back then Brazil’s currency was simply rebounding after a sharp fall in the early stages of the global crisis.

    Politicians in brazil are highly specialized in misdirection a form of deception in which the attention of an audience is focused on one thing in order to distract its attention from another. they did really well with that and deceived everybody for about 12 years

    While some naive investors read that brazil is strongly trying to control the flow of money in , they are actualy trying to control the flow of money out , even the brazilian investors are getting out

    The reality is , Brazil is managed by a gang of dangerous criminals , the president (suppost economist )managed to bankrupt a 1.99 store before becoming the lider of the gang , not to mention before that she was a communist terrorist.

    99% of them are stealing public money at a very fast rate and converting proceeds into USD , becouse they know brazilian real is going to crash

    If you have any investments in brazil , get out fast…
