    Since the beginning of this extraordinary year we have seen the dollar bounce, in a Homer Simsonesque tumble down stairs, falling 13% in exchange rate value with our beloved BRL. Aside from the breathtaking corruption in Brazilian politics, the big question, apart from the current global downturn in growth, is what is keeping the Real from trading at a realistic value relative to its global size and importance?
    Europe, its whole future in question, is now grasping at straws since its negative interests rates combined with money printing have proved ineffective in battling deflation and political cynicism. Similarly, Japan had already proved that such monetary policies are ineffective yet Central Banks have no other tools with which to combat the current global phenomenon – Central banks, that is,with the unique exception of the Federal Reserve, whose eye-watering money printing and abuse of the almighty dollar is the stuff worthy only in works of pure fiction. In fact when one studies these shenanigans it is entirely possible to enjoy the intellectual truth & drama which unfolds in the movie, ‘Batman v Superman’.

    When the Bee Gees toured Brazil they found the same problems and so wrote the lyrics to ‘Tragedy’.

    “When the feeling’s gone and you can’t go on
    It’s tragedy
    When the morning cries and you don’t know why
    It’s hard to bear
    With no one to love you, you’re
    Goin’ nowhere
    Tragedy
    When you lose control and you got no soul
    It’s tragedy
    When the morning cries and you don’t know why
    It’s hard to bear
    With no one beside you, you’re
    Goin’ nowhere
    When the feeling’s gone and you can’t go on it’s tragedy.

    Whilst it’s true thatthere is a great deal of external dollar debt, Brazil√¢‚ǨÀús dollar reserves areknown and recorded. Of course, unlike the US where dollars are printed withimpunity in toilet tissue factories, Brazil cannot print dollars. A form ofquantitative easing within the Real domain used to buy government debt is apossibility however the required yield may be up to 15% in the currentfinancial climate. Relax, currency, like water, will find its own level whenthe traders untangle their panties.

    [QUOTE=Grads]patience and enjoy well being. carpe diem. buoy your hope on a mega; it is a miracle that any of us are here anyway.[/QUOTE]

    A timely reminder from Grads that men have sought thatwhich is forbidden knowledge; our destiny in all things and in this case thetrivia of exchange rates. Our ancestors advised against Babylonian soothsayers,who like today’s central bankers, predict in vain. Reality is in each moment oftime, which, if it were fruit, should be plucked, ripe from the vine of ourlives. What we do today shapes our tomorrows √¢‚Ǩ‚Äú have a nice one.

    The good news, following recent check-ups, is that there has been no progression. She’s in good spirits and so we take each day at a time. And thank you for your good wishes. Meanwhile she’s addicted to the daily news about our beloved politicians and thus far has resisted the temptation to throw the cat at the TV screen!

    Yes, it’s me. I’ve been locked out by technology up until today. All’s well now it seems.
