He’s also an economist who studies where the Brazilian and foreign markets are headed and what any changes in currency value mean. He recently offered his take on the 2015 inflation of the Brazilian Real and what it means at Dino news and explained how Brazil could come out on top in this situation.
One thing Ricardo Tosto de Oliveira Carvalho attributed some of the recent Brazilian Real inflation to was an increase in imported goods to Brazil in recent years because it’s brought an increase in prices and an even stronger US dollar to contend with. He believes one of the keys to returning to a strong real was decreasing the deficit in exporting, and also paying attention to the situation in Europe. He also asserts that it will be up to the Brazilian Economic Minister Joaqim Levy and economic policies triggered by the Brazilian congressional houses to help stabilize currency.
