Jair Bolsonaro – In Which Ways Can Neo-Liberalism Help Or Destroy The Country

Jair Bolsonaro – In Which Ways Can Neo-Liberalism Help Or Destroy The Country

Neo-liberalism cannot be said to be all bad even if it is not a word that elicits positive feelings. However, many of the policies associated with neo – liberalism are not popular with the masses especially in Latin America. The Brazilian government, under the leadership of Jair Bolsonaro, has embraced this state.

In Latin America, neo-liberalism does not have a stellar track record. In fact, it has been tried but it failed to deliver results. This state promotes policies such as the following:

  • Privatization of public resources
  • Free trade
  • Cuts in government expenditure
  • Financial deregulation

The market is mostly concerned about profit margins and ensuring that there is some middle ground between supply and demand. This is necessary for making good profits.

The Rise Of Neoliberalism In Latin America

One of the reasons why neo-liberalist state failed in Latin American countries such as Brazil can be found in history. Countries that were under colonial and imperialist rule depended on their natural resources of which there were plenty.

However, the colonialists set up infrastructures in such a way that resources were extracted and transported out of the country. Thus, development in the various areas of the economy was not uniform.

Once these colonies gained independence, they focused on developing areas of the economy that had stagnated. Tariffs were the go-to solution for earning income. However, they affected economic growth negatively.

 In a bid to correct this, leaders adopted neoliberalist policies. These called for the banishing of tariffs and opening up the markets to the international community.

Jair Bolsonaro’s Victory

The victory of Jair Bolsonaro in a runoff election signifies the resurgence of neoliberalism as he embodies it. The country has experienced the most serious economic slump in history in the last decade. With Bolsonaro at the helm, this scenario is expected to continue playing out.

How Can Neoliberalism Help Or Destroy The Country?

According to political analysts, Neoliberalism is not likely to make the country’s economic situation any better. In the last decade, the following has happened:

  • At least 14 million Brazilians of working age have lost their jobs
  • The elite political class has grown richer
  • The ruling class has gained even more political clout

This cycle is expected to continue playing out. Consequently, the country will continue experiencing economic problems. This realization may drive Brazilians to elect better leaders in future; leaders whose main priority is rebuilding the country’s economy.

This will work well if there is a change in the organization of economic relations.

Neoliberalism is not likely to be of much help to the country. Considering the history behind it as well as results achieved, this state does not promise any great changes; at least not where the economy is concerned. It is the age-old saying of doing the same thing while expecting different results. History has the records to prove liberal governments are not helpful. Those that supported the financing of industrial economies left in their wake capitalist crisis. All the economies had to show for their efforts were debts.

Latin America Caught Up In Trading Crossfire

Latin America Caught Up In Trading Crossfire

When the bona fide period of the early 2000s ended for commodities, Latin America was caught in the cross fire between two of the most powerful countries in the world: USA and China. Read on to understand the role that political changes in the region have in this moment of the world.

Bolsonaro, Macri And Trump

Since 2014 the region saw a diminished economic growth because of the dropping of commodities prices in the world. Although that could be thought as an isolated economic phenomenon it got some serious repercussion in some countries´ political status too.

Venezuela had Chavez, Argentina had Nestor Kirchner and Brazil had Lula Da Silva as presidents and population in those three countries (three of the most important economies of the region) refer now to those moments as the golden age of their lives. Nowadays everything changed because commodities price dropped worldwide and also, Trump´s protectionism had a huge impact on smaller economies.

Bolsonaro and Macri are echoing on neoliberalism and its disregard for local, internal economic growth. The raise on loan interest internationally affected them in terms of having to pay more to get the same money injection to their local economies. Having to cut on social welfare led to a drop in internal consumption and economic recession.

Spending Smart

Some experts like Alejandro Izquierdo encourage governments to spend smart, which means to cut the alleged “fat” from the state expenditures (especially state workers and retired people) to increase the available liquid money. Both: Bolsonaro and Macri are completely aligned with this way of thinking and are cutting through social welfare policies.

USA and China tensions and the impossibility to export commodities to them have had a deep effect that reached up to 0.5% of the GDP in some cases. For an economy that has a growth rate of 2%, it is a lot.


With tensions outside the boundaries of their countries and also inside, the instability for which the region is known for is drastically increasing. With two of the most powerful countries in the world in tension and interests going up, there is not such a good panorama ahead. As all Economy Forecast, it is not 100% accurate, but there are high chances that being caught in the crossfire with a drop in commodities and also USA and China being protective can end up being a nightmare for the region.

Current Economic Trends In Spanish-Speaking Latin America

Current Economic Trends In Spanish-Speaking Latin America

After several years struggling, there is glean hope that the economy of Latin America will stabilize if figures for 2017 and the expected future outlook is anything to go by. Since 2014 it’s only last year that we have seen such a remarkable growth, for instance, the last quarter of last year the region’s GDP grew by 2.3%. There have been several factors which can be attributed to such positive outlook. Looking at individual countries could reveal efforts to bail out the economy from the woods. Brazil which is a major player in Latin America’s economy had the central bank ease monetary policy after the fall of inflation in Q4.

Chile’s new President Sebastián Piñera seems to be development conscious; a move to retain Felipe Larrain as the Finance minister seems to be a good one and which analysts have applauded. Lerrain is celebrated for the role he has played for a robust economic growth in Chile. But the road ahead is not all rosy as the passing of legislation could stand in the way as politics come into play.

Prepare for something that will makes you nostalgia attack your mind! Being a fan of sitcoms has always been rewarding and it’s no exception today. With current economy in adult entertainment we should call ourselves lucky to experience something like That Sitcom Show – the parody and porn adaptation of the most famous TV shows from back in the day.

The political situation in Ecuador could mean something to the economy. President Moreno after consolidating power can now move without many hiccups and pass legislation which could affect the economy positively. We can only wait and hope for the best in Colombia who are now warming for their elections to be held between March and May 2018.


MYLF - Straight From Brazil
MYLF – Straight From Brazil

Mature women have always been a point of interest in this country. So this is nothing really shocking seeing that many of MYLF actresses are originating from this beautiful country. The series of moms that you would love to friend is going to be launched worldwide later this summer and we are pretty sure it’s going to feature a lot of mature ladies from Brazil. Follow the series here.

Analysts are optimistic that the economy of Brazil will continue registering positive results. The accommodative monetary policy and improved confidence being part of the reasons for optimism. Figures reported for Q4 last year can only affirm the situation on the ground, as now there’s a rise in consumer sentiments. This year economists project that the economy will grow by 2.5% rising to 2.6% in 2019. There is, however, some worry due to the political situation in the country especially as we draw near to the October elections. This uncertainty could generate volatility in the country’s exchange rate and financial markets. Brazil is Latin America’s largest economy but could soon take a back seat due to slower growth.


All is not well in Mexico, as the country continues to struggle with consumer sentiments deteriorating by the day. The economy is badly affected by the effects of the high inflation, tighter monetary condition, and fiscal consolidation. GDP estimates show that the last quarter of 2017 the economy registered a growth of 1.8%. There has reported shrank in retail sales and rise in unemployment. The government has not been spared either and it had to scale down infrastructure projects. Probably after the elections, things could change but so far analysts project that in 2018, the economy will grow by 2.2%.


This is a country that seems to be affected by a widening current account making its economy venerable to external shocks. The situation is also affecting the local currency and the ballooning external debt obligations. Currently, the currency is experiencing further depreciation a time when a number of subsidies for basic products continue to be slashed. Though inflation continues to rise, it’s expected that the government will continue tightening its spending though and still rely on international debt to finance its fiscal spending. A growth of 3 % is however projected in 2018 and a fast economic growth expected in the next two years due to solid growth in fixed investment.


There was a mixed data for the final quarter of 2017. There was a turnaround in the retail sector as we saw lower unemployment and subsequent improvement in consumer confidence. But other areas like car sales saw contraction. The trade deficit narrowed due to rise in exports and contraction of imports. These are some of the areas that will continue driving the economy of Columbia this year. It’s expected that growth in private consumption, moderate inflation, higher fixed investment and growth in exports will continue spurring economic growth to a higher new level. The economy is expected to grow at 2.6% in 2018. But if political tensions are amplified due to this year’s elections, it could see the economy badly affected.

The economy of Spanish speaking Latin America is currently not as bad as it was two years ago, there’s a remarkable improvement and the future seems better. Nevertheless, politics seems the biggest impediment to economic growth and how well the region plays politics will have an effect on the future economic outlook of the region.

Permanent peace and refuge are superficial aims of all states in the international system. As a representation of an enlightened international societal order. However, they remain intangible states of concerns.

How Latin America Continues To Benefit From Having Tight Bilateral Relations With Spain

How Latin America Continues To Benefit From Having Tight Bilateral Relations With Spain

The Latin American region was mostly colonized by Portugal and Spain. As the two empires of the pre-renaissance era, they managed to capture the continent to themselves. Not shocking, Spanish and Portuguese are the major languages that are spoken on the continent. Having strong ties with former colonial powers is quite important. In the light of this, Latin American nations have sought to cement their relations with both Spain and Portugal. Most notably, Spain and Latin America have developed fond relations with each other.

Over the past few decades, the two have continued to strengthen their relations with each other.

As a matter of fact, the close ties between Spain and Latin America goes back as far as the 19th century following the end of the colonial era. Spain’s foreign policy always puts the bilateral relations between the two as a primal.

But, this is perhaps more beneficial to Latin America than to Spain. Even though this may seem true, it is not. The relations between Spain and Latin America are important to both parties since each of them benefits quite greatly.As Spain continues to enjoy close ties with Latin America, it will benefit in terms of trade and tourism. Spain’s image as an important former colonial power is also greatly improved by these bilateral relations.

Latin America, on the other hand, has continued to benefit greatly from these relations. It is perhaps time to dwell on the various notable benefits that have emerged from the close ties between Latin America and Spain.


“The Latin American region was mostly colonized by Portugal and Spain.”

In as far as trade is concerned; the two parties have enjoyed huge benefits from their relationship with each other. Five years ago, Spain even managed to gain recognition in the Pacific Alliance. This is an important Latin America Trade bloc which has continued to be instrumental in the global trade affairs involving many iconic figures on the planet.

Financial aid

There is no other country in Europe which beats Spain in as far as the channeling of resources to the Latin American region is concerned. Despite the downfall of the Spanish empire along with its political control over the Latin American region, Spain still sends a significant amount of aid to Latin American countries especially those which were under its rule.  Therefore, the bilateral relations between the two nations have proven to be profitable to Latin American nations.

“It is quite easy for Latin American inhabitants to travel to Spain and the other way round.”

Diplomatic benefits

Thanks to the strong diplomatic ties that exist between the two parties, it is quite easy for Latin American inhabitants to travel to Spain and the other way round. Exchange of information, developmental ideas and addressing of matters patterning to security and trade is possible through the various summits that are held by the two parties.


Spain and Latin America have continued to enjoy many benefits in far as the exchange of culture is concerned. This explains why the Spanish language and other cultural norms patterning to Spain are still solid in Latin America despite the end of the colonial era.

Latin America: Economic Performance In 2016

Latin America: Economic Performance In 2016

After a rough 2015 and 2016, many Latin American expect nothing but growth in their economies. Not shocking, the region’s inhabitants have staged a number of protests in a bid to pressure the government into spurring economic growth through the devising and implementation of strategic economic policies.

“After a rough 2015 and 2016, many Latin American expect nothing but growth in their economies.”

The year 2015 was a year of recession. Many Latin American nationals will obviously live to remember the economic woes that characterized the region during the course of 2015. To some, the year 2015 is by far one of the worst economic downturns that they have seen since the 2008 global recession. The economic woes of 2015 were largely attributed to a decline in revenues for each of the individual countries. This decline in revenue was triggered by the continued normalization of prices in commodities which took place between 2008 and 2010 following the end of the global economic crisis.

But, the year 2016 was not better in any kind of way. As a matter of fact, it was far worse than the year which preceded it. Even though Argentines ushered in a new government in the year 2016, they still had to endure a long spell of poor economic performance as a result of the errors inherited from previous regimes. Both Brazil and Argentina were the worst hit by the economic recession of 2016. In particular, Brazil registered an economic growth which is far worse than what the country had witnessed in 2008 during the global recession.

Experts believe that Brazil is currently in a recession that its government and inhabitants will live to remember for as long as they remain alive.

“An individual look at each of the countries clearly shows that Brazil was the worst hit by the 2016 economic downturn.”

Individual countries considered

An individual look at each of the countries clearly shows that Brazil was the worst hit by the 2016 economic downturn. Heightened fiscal policies along with stiffened monetary policies have accounted for this. Further, little has been done to overturn the effects of the poor economic policies of the previous regimes. For a Brazilian, having to endure the harsh economic downturn of the year 2016 was obviously worse than failing to win the 2014 world cup on home soil. According to experts, the year 2016 marked the onset of a recession that no Brazilian has witnessed over the past four or so decades.

In the light of this, the country’s economy is in a state which is far worse than it has ever witnessed. The country’s corruption crisis has continued to mare economic growth as economic policies fail to take root and impact the country’s economy. Further, both consumer and investor confidence have dropped significantly over the past few years in response to the perpetual decline in economic growth that has characterized the country. Currently, the country’s inflation has skyrocketed along with a decline in consumer spending.

Venezuela did not fare any better despite not being the worst. Its economic woes started after 2014 following the change in commodity prices which came after the 2008 global recession.In as far Venezuela is concerned, it was the oil prices which continued tumbling down throughout the year 2016 as a result of the oil supply glut which characterized the industry. This culminated into a shortfall in the supply of both the consumer and intermediate commodities.

The price and currency control measures which the government put in place also did very little to mitigate the situation. Rather, they spurred inflation coupled with a deterioration of the people’s social welfare.

For Argentina, things have not been smooth simply because of the poor policies left behind by the previous regime. A number of measures have already been put in place to spur economic growth. But, the transition has been somewhat harsh for the local people. Experts believe that the situation will change in the near future especially by the end of the second of 2017.

What economic experts did not foresee

Following the harshness of the economic situation in the Latin American countries, a number of measures had been proposed to cushion against the perpetual decline in the economic performance of the region. But, experts did not foresee the outcomes of most of the economic policies for the year 2016. For example, consumer confidence for Brazil had dropped to a score of 74 for a sixth successive quarter.

Further, job prospects for all the countries in the region declined significantly with Brazil and Argentina both registering the highest drops.

Latin America And Its Relations With China And The US

Latin America And Its Relations With China And The US

In a world where existing independently is virtually impossible, there is every need to be in close relations with the people around you. This principle actually applies to countries as well. The Latin American community is fully aware of the need to have close relations with the international community. But, the international community comprises many entities.

Much as it is vital to have close ties with almost every country on the planet, there are certain countries that every country cannot afford to be in bad terms with. In particular, having close ties with the US and China is important to any country on the earth.

The Latin American community is fully aware of the need to cement its ties with both the US and China. In a bid to understand the stance of Latin American nations on the issue of having smooth relations with both China and the US, the passage discusses a number of important topics patterning to this subject.

Latin America and China

“China is an important figure in the affairs of the world.”

China is an important figure in the affairs of the world. Its economy plays a huge role in the sustenance of the global economy based on its notable contribution to the world’s economy. Not shocking, the Chinese government had played an instrumental role in reviving the European economy following the recent European economic crisis. Also, china had helped the US to get back on its feet following the 2008 global financial crisis. Africa has also benefited greatly from foreign direct investment from China. There are numerous benefits that come with having close ties with china and the Latin American community is fully aware of this. China believes that it can also benefit greatly from having smooth relations with the Latin American region. It is safe to say that the relationship that exists between the two is a symbiotic one. China’s commitment to the cementation of relations with the Latin American nations is highlighted in China’s Policy Paper on Latin America and the Caribbean.

“The US has focused on migration concerns along with the sale of illegal drugs by immigrants from Mexico and Columbia.”

Latin America and US

Like china, the US is an important nation in both economic and political affairs of the world. As the world superpower, it remains one of the world’s most important nations. The US and China benefit greatly from Latin American nations. In the recent past, relations between the US and Latin America has not been as strong as it was in the past. Most notably, the US has focused on migration concerns along with the sale of illegal drugs by immigrants from Mexico and Columbia. But, the Task force which was initiated by the government to asses the relationship between the US and Latin America has recommended the need to focus on fostering development in the Latin American region. This is even going to become more important in the near future as the construction of the Mexico boarder looms coupled with a significant number of moves patterning to ranging from travel bans to business limitations.

A recent move by Eduardo to grant asylum to an anti-US official is likely to affect trade between the two nations. This is a perfect example of how relations between the US and Latin America have suffered over the years.

Are Latin American Countries Developing More Advanced Economies?

Are Latin American Countries Developing More Advanced Economies?

Latin American countries had seen the worst economic performance in 2015 following the onset of the recession. It is understood that the region fared far worse than it has ever done in the past ten years.

“Latin American countries had seen the worst economic performance in 2015.”

Economic experts around the globe attributed the decline in economic growth in most Latin American countries to a drop in commodity prices, poor governance and lack of growth oriented economic programs. Even Venezuela which had been doing quite well by the summit of 2014, also failed to impress both during the onset of 2015 and towards the end of 2016. Generally, the year 2016 was far worse than what most economic experts had expected. Here is a general overview of what could have led to the deteriorated economic growth in the Latin American region.

Understanding the situation on the ground

According to information on the economic growth pattern of the region for the year 2016, it is clear that the region witnessed a much worse economic downturn than most economic experts had expected.  Even though the region’s economic growth had literally stagnated during the whole of 2015, the year 2016 still promised better things. Economic experts within the region had a better outlook than what they witnessed in 2016.

Expert sources show that the region’s economic growth contracted by around 0.7 %. This is by far worse than what was forecasted earlier in the year.As things stand, countries like Brazil and Argentina are still in the deep waters of the 2015 economic recession.

Brazil in particular, is experiencing an economic situation which is far worse than what it witnessed in 2016 as the country’s currency continues to depreciate along with low investor confidence and consumer spending.

In as far GDP growth is concerned, the region fared quite badly. Economic data shows that the region fared the worst in this area after its GDP declined by over 0.2 %. Compared to other regions in the world, this was the worst performance of the year 2016. Even sub Sahara Africa recorded a much better GDP (about 4 %; this was the 3rd best GDP growth in the world) for the year 2016 than Latin America. This is the current situation on the ground. The three major countries in the region are all fighting to lift themselves out of the current mess using various measures.

“A number of economic experts believe that the region’s failure to emerge out of the 2015 recession was largely caused by poor economic policies.”

Poor past economic policies

A number of economic experts believe that the region’s failure to emerge out of the 2015 recession was largely caused by poor economic policies. Major economies in the region including Brazil, Argentina and Venezuela had been found to be culprits of poor economic policies which had been structured and implemented by previous regimes. The effects of such past policies had resurfaced and began to haunt the economies of these great Latin American nations.

To be more precise, experts strongly believe that the recession which was witnessed by the region was largely due to the past economic policies especially those which were implemented during the post 2008 global recession era. Argentina is the major culprit in this regard having just ushered in a new government last year following the expiration of the former regime’s tenure. The new government took over both macroeconomic and microeconomic imbalances which had been left behind by the previous regime.

For example, Brazil and Argentina both failed to deal with the depreciation of their currencies against the US dollar. Like most Latin American countries, they chose to depend on tightening their fiscal policies. This was also replicated by Venezuela which not only tightened its fiscal policies, but also went on to stiffen its monetary policies. All the countries in the region which followed suit gradually saw a sharp drop in their economic growth rates.

What lies ahead?

This is the question that everyone is asking. The contracted economic growth that has characterized the region is not new to the rest of the world. But, the right measures have to be put in place to dismiss it before things become worse. Argentina and Brazil both share the same economic woes, even though Brazil appears to be in a much worse situation. Venezuela’s growth has equally stalled although recent measures appear to be yielding the government’s desired results.
