A economia do Brasil vai encolher 3,10% este ano, com a taxa de inflação atingindo 9,99%, o Banco Central anunciou segunda-feira, citando sua pesquisa semanal do setor privado. Na semana passada, analistas disseram esperar que a economia do Brasil encolha 3,05% neste ano e a taxa de inflação a ser de 9,91%.
The gross domestic product and inflation estimates come from the Boletin Focus, a weekly Central Bank survey of analysts from about 100 private financial institutions on the state of the national economy.
Analysts also revised their 2016 estimates downward, saying they expect Brazil’s GDP to contract by 1.90% in 2016, with inflation falling to 6.46%.
If the forecasts prove to be accurate, Brazil’s economy is headed for its worst economic performance since 1990, when it contracted by 4.35%, and will register two consecutive years of negative growth for the first time since 1948… (MERCOPRESS)
