Brazil an Emerging Market Economy June 5 Esa Tikkanen Oilers Jersey , 2013 | Author: Joe Davies | Posted in Finance
In 2001 head of worldwide economic research at Goldman Sachs, Jim OíNeill, created the acronym BRICs. It referred to Brazil; Russia Connor McDavid Oilers Jersey , India, and China, nations which were new markets that he thought would point the way for financial development over the next FIFTY years. Since that time BRICís has developed a very common acronym among correspondents Boyd Gordon Oilers Jersey , teachers and economic experts when describing emerging market economies (EMEs). Many investors love the BRICS as the growth potential is high and great for fund managers looking for diversyfying their portfolios for investment vehices such as QROPS.
Brazil, the 1st letter of Brick is still not yet a totally developed country but there is not one thing that explains why, the general problems Brazil face are policy disasters Bill Ranford Oilers Jersey , unreasonable inequality and external factors.
The Brazilian governmentís biggest policy fail is overspending which contributes to high IRs and costly borrowing coupled with FX increases that raises the cost of goods produced domestically injuring exports. Brazilís need for commodity exports, mainly oil and food, to drive growth is also a major policy fail as it creates inflationary pressure and currency appreciation. This appreciated currency has a follow-on effect on other areas of the economy mainly the producing sector pushing their prices too high and making them uncompetitive in the worldwide market. This in turn creates more dependency on commodity exports and makes the nation vulnerable to external market shocks.
Corruption is rife in Brazil with Transparency International ranking them as the 69th least corrupt country out of 178 measured in 2012. The base of the corruption is a complicated subject but in short it begins with a political system which permits more than 20 political parties. All parties are in a constant scuffle to procure finances from the governing body for roles Benoit Pouliot Oilers Jersey , payrolls, welfare benefits and contracts which would help to steer the voting populace during elections. Their system almost promotes corruption as this is often the simple way to secure funds for your constituents when you have no voting power. Public officers must be stopped from moving cash away from the legitimate people or projects, something which will doubtless become more tricky with huge oil riches looming.
It is more chancy and dearer for foreign financiers to conduct business in Brazil due to its regulatory and legal system. The tax policy in Brazil desperately desires reform. Regarding simplicity of paying tax they were placed 152nd in the world by the World Bank due to their complicated tax code and 128th in the world for ease of starting a new company. The test World Bank used took 2600 man hours to align to Brazilian tax law Ben Scrivens Oilers Jersey , a massive cost for any company needing to conduct business in the country. Stringent labour laws which make it virtually impossible to fire a worker also adds to the cost of engaging in business here, even company insolvency or worker slackness are not seen as an acceptable reason to dismiss an employee.
The Brazilian legal system allows an inordinate number of appeals on all cases, which allows the government to block the payment on any judgement indefinitely. It is estimated that 90% of the cases being handled by the supreme court are cases which have just been decided but are being appealed Andrew Ference Oilers Jersey , sometimes many thousands of times.
One of the most commonly known Problems holding Brazil back is inequality. Poverty is extensive in Brazil and it is estimated that economic growth is reduced by 1% with each 10% increase in poorness. This is old stuff with the inequality often blamed on unbalanced land distribution and a bad education system. Dating back to colonial times the government saw barely any need for education in areas populated by slaves and a light population of Continentals. When slavery ended in 1889 there wasnít any education in those areas and this hasnít changed much since that time as the wealthier, whiter Brazilians have controlled politics and chose to invest more in the South of the country generally ignoring the indigenous populations of the north, something which is also reflected in cities across the land.
There are external factors which also have an effect on Brazilís capabilities to progress in world markets. Aid by other regimes Andrej Sekera Oilers Jersey , primarily the US and Chinese permit their farmers to challenge better Brazilian farmers by lowering production costs and so reducing requirement for produce from Brazil. China is Brazilís largest trading partner and its largest competitor. Serious demand by China for Iron ore and Soy beans has pushed prices high globally. If this demand should ever fall Brazil would get left having to sell at less than profitable prices. Additionally the Chinese executives practice of preventing its currency from gaining keeps itsí value, artificially low. This makes Chinese goods less expensive to purchase than Brazilian made goods. Brazil looses clients due to this both at home and abroad. By placing an import duty on Chinese goods the Brazilian authorities has tried to ease the Problems on the local market but they cannot affect the competitors on the.
