    Not really. Most people that say this do not even know what they are saying.

    One of his mains proposals are: get good trade deals (for both) with developing countries, reduce crime and simplify taxation in Brasil (one of the most complex systems in the world).

    He’s not really like Trump except both valeu their countries and are anti-pc.

    People on Reddit need some economics lessons. Badly...

    [–] The Iron Courtain is still there: employers still pay several times less for labour in the East than in the West P5r5z 40 points ago in europe

    This is presented is such a shitty way, that makes me cringe. First, the color diference between 13- 25 is so strong and much less than ~25-42.

    Second salary simple does not work this way. If you increase the salary (w) whoever had their costs of production increase will increase the price (p) of their products. So you should look at the (w/p) cost of living in those places instead of just the w. Probably the discrepancy would be much lighter.

    Third, and a educated guess, by having cheaper labor you probably will have more people producing more in a couple ears. I mean, if you're in a single marked the effect tends to spread (hence the reason why countries that are more rinch are in general richer even in poorest areas), the EU is ~24 years old give it some time and look how the countries, in general have improved.

    Forth, AND MOSTLY IMPORTANT, YOU CANNOT RAISE W WITHOUT RAISING PRODUCTIVITY. Why would anyone employ someone that does not produce as much and the next person if they both demand the same W? No one would. W should come from the amount the worker's work increases for the company (why education/experience increases W) not from charity or social demand.

    Tl;dr. Data set is correct, but bad presented. Simply increasing wage makes no sense. Don't trust graphics realized by political parties, they are trying to get voters (it's their business), not doing charity and releasing public info.

    [–] What event happened in your life which caused some character development for you? P5r5z 10 points ago in AskReddit

    Somewhat feel you, I dated the same girl since I was 14 (23 now). Somehow miss the memories, growing together, however I am so relieved that we broke up. After all that time she became someone who I do not want to be with.

    Sucks, but I'm better without than with someone who I'm no longer feel confortable with.

    This SO MUCH. "BF4 feels like BF3.5" Oh look, "BF1 is not the same as BF4, BF1 sucks".

    Well, guess what? BF4 is still a beautiful game, plays really well and has a huge player base. You can (and should) play both, one for whatever want at the time.

    Edit: grammar

    Is he?

    He trying to get “america first” trade deals sounds quite different.

    Also the scene is quite different, for example, a developing country can benefit simply from importing because it does not have the reserves you need to develop new sectors, income per capta is low, interest high, making hard for private sector to invest in new markets/tech and the gov has to deal with security/health/education. In developed countries you have low interest, high ppc... it’s easier and cheaper to get a low rate loan for you crazy idea that might turn the world up-side down.

    Same goes for taxes, the US has a fairly simply tax system, income/vat. Brazil’s tax system is chaotic complex and high, their total tax as % of profit is 68.4% (Venezuela 64.7%, Sweden 49.1%, US 44.0% and Denmark 25.0%, for reference). The point is the US and Trump are a total different scenario than Brazil and Bolso.

    The sensationalism and fear surrounding Bolsonaro is through the roof, if you hear to what he says, he genuinely wants to improve Brazil, he also knows the way most economists would agree is the best, while also improving the quality of live from people there (security/education/reduce bureaucracy).

    Right now, theres nothing we can do to reduce the fear or improve brazil’s quality of life. However I hope that once Bolso start working the fear surrounding him reduced and he get some results. However brazilians still have a long way to go, they still have to change things in congress and senate. Their “battle for a better Brazil, for everyone” is probably just begging, hope they are able to see this.
