Boston Globe: Lula, o Maior Escândalo da Década!


Um artigo longo no Boston Globe sobre o Brasil e sobre Lula demonstra o desencanto com o Presidente e as preocupações com o País e com a América Latina. O Boston Globe classifica o que está acontecendo no Brasil de "maior escândalo de corrupção da década", fala em "revelações sórdidas", diz que o Governo parou de funcionar e faz a pergunta que mais preocupa aos investidores estrangeiros: Como é que um presidente enfraquecido sem suporte no Congresso poderá conduzir a política econômica e implementar as reformas necessárias?

Today, Luis Inacio Lula da Silva's party is embroiled in the worst Brazilian corruption scandal in more than a decade, a wide-reaching payoff scheme that has tarnished his reputation, imperiled his policies and chances for reelection, and dealt a severe blow to his Workers' Party.

"Investors and lenders have voiced concern about whether a politically weakened Lula, bereft of congressional support, will have the clout to maintain a tight monetary policy and to implement planned economic revisions, including proposals for tougher tax and labor policies.A downturn in the biggest economy in South America, and a major US trading partner, would dampen neighboring economies, many of which are only now recovering from their own fiscal shocks. Meanwhile, the antipoverty agenda that brought Lula to office has fallen by the wayside. Land distribution and anti-hunger programs have been forgotten and economic reforms paralyzed, critics on both sides of the political spectrum say."
