👉Economista neoliberal agora “tem” (?) vergonha de Temer – mas (só?) lá no Washington Post!


👉Economista neoliberal agora “tem” (?) vergonha de Temer – mas (só?) lá no Washington Post!


- Gente fina é outra coisa...

A cara de pau da economista Monica de Bolle não tem limite.


Entusiasta, muito vocal, do golpe, agora aparece na matéria do Washington Post para lamentar o desastre social que se seguiu:


"'Many people who had risen out of poverty, and even those who had risen into the middle class, have fallen back,' said Monica de Bolle, a senior fellow at the Washington-based Peterson Institute for International Economics".


Como se não tivesse nada com isso, é claro (!)


Como recordar é viver, fiz questão de deixar, como PRIMEIRO comentário à matéria, um "pequeno" esclarecimento sobre as posições dessa senhora:


Monica de Bolle has no shame??


She supported the coup d'Etat that brought the current - illegitimate - government to power. And was VERY vocal in criticizing the previous administrations, which were responsible for the policies that remedied Brazil's stark social inequality. In Brazil, de Bolle fools no one any longer.


Here's a link for a video in whcih de Bolle - with no legal background! - renders a "legal opinion" (lol) according to which the Parliamentary coup was "legal":





Oddly enough, in the English version - recorded 2 days later - she stresses that "she is not knowledgeable in law" and would, thus, refrain from commenting on legal aspects.





Of course: the first video made her the object of ridicule on social media.


The woman is a total joke!

PS: deixei no início o link para o perfil de Monica em vez de marcá-la na publicação no Facebook porque a "democrata" me bloqueou ainda no ano passado.


Lógico: fui o primeiro a ridicularizar o seu "parecer jurídico" (lol) audiovisual (!) "fundamentando" (sic) o golpe, lá no GGN, em 20/4/2016:







- Quero os 5min de minha vida perdidos de volta, Sra. Monica de Bolle!


- Defraudadora é a Sra., vendendo gato por lebre nesse vídeo!


Vejam se não:


- Sou alertado de que todos os partidários do golpe estão compartilhando este vídeo, publicado há apenas 10h, em que uma “jurisconsulta”, de postura digna de uma rediviva redatora do Código de Justiniano, diz por A + B que há sim “crime" no processo de impeachment.


- Diz apenas não... PROVA!


- Com argumentação jurídica certamente soprada por Reese Witherspoon, direto do filme “Legally Blond”. (Aliás, melhor tomar cuidado, sendo ela amiga da Reese e eu Chihuahua. Não quero acabar apertada dentro de uma bolsa Prada)


(Nota importantíssima: amei a sua pronúncia para “impeachment", amiga! Os anos em D.C. aparentam, hein? Que chique. Arrasou!   ¬¬


Se tudo der errado e o impeachment morrer - atenção na pronúncia desse "t" final, gente. Vejam Monica! - já tem vaga garantida de professora num curso Wizard do bairro mais próximo de vocês!)


- Por ser da área e não lembrar dessa “jurista” dos “reaças”, constitucionalista, administrativista e penalista, procurei-a no Google.


- Jurista? JURISTA? Que nada!


Sintam o background da moça:


- ECONOMISTA (hahaha), do Instituto Millenium no Brasil e do think tank PIIE, nos EUA.


- Os dois ultraliberais.


- Conheço bastante o segundo, PIIE, por intercâmbios acadêmicos, daqui da Suíça. Evidentemente que se trata de instituição com agenda política assumida, mas academicamente respeitável. Tem critério. Em nada se compara com o primo pobre brasileiro.


- O nome da “parecerista” não me era de todo estranho. Daí descubro ainda no Google que publica artigos de opinião na Folha - com aquele conteúdo que seria de se esperar mesmo. Além disso, várias vezes participa de programa na rádio CBN, em que ela e Carlos Alberto Sardenberg levantam mutuamente bolas. Um para o outro cortar.


(Nota 2: Ah, como é rico em opiniões plurais nosso panorama audiovisual no oligopólio midiático familiar brasileiro, não é mesmo?


Não! Não mesmo...)


Quer o bônus? Então lá vai:


- Casa das Garças, professora da PUC-Rio e até ex-FMI.


- Tudo de “bom” para se apresentar como “jurisconsulta” (ha-ha) “isentona” (ha-ha-ha-ha), não é verdade?


Conclusão:


- Presidente Dilma, Acabou! Agora é melhor desistir mesmo de fazer a Constituição valer no STF...


- Dalmo Dallari, Celso Antônio Bandeira de Mello, Juarez Tavares, Ricardo Lodi, entre tantos outros... esses “bachareizinhos” de província devem estar todos trêmulos depois de ouvir Monica de Bolle - com autoridade - “dizer o direito” em web-vídeo-parecer destinado aos ricos debates de grupos de whatsapp.


- Chapa Temer/Cunha: AGORA VAI!


- Esqueçam essas preocupações com o opróbrio internacional, a falta de apoio entre governos estrangeiros, a afirmação taxativa de que são golpistas pela OEA, pela UNASUL e por diversos Chefes de Estado do Hemisfério.


- Esqueçam também da ridicularização unânime na imprensa internacional do processo de impeachment e da votação de domingo. Decerto foi algo menor e o Jornal Nacional apenas teve de repercutir por falta de outras pautas.


- A solução para todos os males e questionamentos chegou: Monica de Bolle, ora!


- Aliás, isso me lembra minha malsucedida campanha pós-Oscars: "Mais Glorias Pires, incapazes de opinar sobre temas que não dominam, menos bacharéis de Facebook, capazes de exarar opiniões definitivas sobre tudo e sobre todos a qualquer momento, mesmo quando não requisitadas".


- Não rolou mesmo...


- Mas isso tudo me dá uma ideia: como a campanha "Mais Glorinha, menos bacharéis de Face..." falhou, por puro oportunismo vou navegar na onda atual e lançar nova campanha, em sentido exatamente oposto:


- Monica de Bolle Ministra da Justiça já!


- Ou no STF: na vaga do Barroso! Sabe muito mais que ele, evidentemente...


- Ajudem-me a compartilhar essa nova campanha! Sucesso garantido nas redes sociais e grupinhos de whatsapp!


- Dá-lhe Monica!

PPS: parece que Monica de Bolle já tem candidato pra Presidente - Luciano Huck (!)



UMA VEZ golpista sem sensibilidade social ou escrúpulos (e ridícula), SEMPRE golpista sem sensibilidade social ou escrúpulos (e ridícula)...

Haja cinismo!

RIO DE JANEIRO — When Leticia Miranda had a job selling newspapers on the streets, she earned about $160 a month, just enough to pay for a tiny apartment she shared with her 8-year-old son in a poor neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro.


When she lost her job about six months ago amid Brazil’s worst economic crisis in decades, Miranda had no choice but to move to an abandoned building where several hundred people were already living. All of her possessions — a bed, a fridge, a stove and some clothes — have been jammed into a small room that like all the others in the building has windows with no glass. Residents bathe in large garbage cans filled with water and do their best to live with the stench of mountains of trash and rummaging pigs in the center of the building.


“I want to leave here, but there is nowhere to go,” said Miranda, 28, dressed in a bikini top, shorts and sandals to deal with the heat. “I’m applying for jobs and did two interviews. So far, nothing.”


Between 2004 and 2014, tens of millions of Brazilians emerged from poverty and the country was often cited as an example for the world. High prices for the country’s raw materials and newly developed oil resources helped finance social welfare programs that put money into the pockets of the poorest.


But that trend has been reversed over the last two years due to the deepest recession in Brazil’s history and cuts to the subsidy programs, raising the specter that this continent-sized nation has lost its way in addressing wide inequalities that go back to colonial times.


“Many people who had risen out of poverty, and even those who had risen into the middle class, have fallen back,” said Monica de Bolle, a senior fellow at the Washington-based Peterson Institute for International Economics.


The World Bank estimates about 28.6 million Brazilians moved out of poverty between 2004 and 2014. But the bank estimates that from the start of 2016 to the end of this year, 2.5 million to 3.6 million will have fallen back below the poverty line of 140 Brazilian reais per month, about $44 at current exchange rates.


Those figures are likely underestimates, de Bolle said, and they don’t capture the fact that many lower-middle class Brazilians who gained ground during the boom years have since slid back closer to poverty.


Economists say high unemployment and cuts to key social welfare programs could exacerbate the problems. In July, the last month for which data is available, unemployment was close to 13 percent, a huge increase from 4 percent at the end of 2004.


Lines of job-seekers stretching several blocks have become commonplace whenever any business announces openings. When a university in Rio this month offered low-skilled jobs paying $400 a month, thousands showed up, including many who stood outside in the rain a day before the process began.


Meanwhile, budgetary pressures and the conservative policies of President Michel Temer are translating into cuts in social services. Among those hit is the Bolsa Familia — Family Allowance — program that gives small subsidies each month to qualifying low-income people. It’s credited with much of the poverty reduction during Brazil’s boom decade.


Non-labor income, including social programs like Bolsa Familia, accounted for nearly 60 percent of the reduction in the number of people living in extreme poverty during the boom decade, said Emmanuel Skoufias, a World Bank economist and one of the authors of the report on Brazil’s “new poor.”


Now, even as job losses have been pushing more people toward the program, fewer are being covered.


“Every day is a struggle to survive,” 40-year-old Simone Batista said, tears streaming down her face as she recounted being cut from Bolsa Familia after her now 1-year-old was born. She wants to appeal, but doesn’t have enough money to take buses to the administrative office downtown. Batista lives in Jardim Gramacho, a slum in northern Rio where she and hundreds of other destitute residents find food by rummaging through garbage illegally dumped in the area.


An Associated Press review of Bolsa Familia data found coverage declined 4 percentage points between May 2016, when Temer became acting president, and May of this year. Part of that may be due to a crackdown on alleged fraud that started late last year. Temer’s administration announced it had found “irregularities” in the records of 1.1 million recipients — about 8 percent of the 14 million people who receive the benefit. The infractions ranged from fraud to families that were earning above $150 a month, the cutoff to receive the benefit.


“The government shouldn’t lose focus on the priority” of keeping people out of poverty, said Skoufias, adding that Bolsa Familia represented only about 0.5 percent of Brazil’s gross domestic product and the government should be looking to allocate more, not fewer, resources to it.


Still, any discussion of increased spending is likely doomed in Congress, where a spending cap was passed earlier this year and Temer is pushing to make large cuts to the pension system. The fiscal situation is even worse for many states, including Rio.


A year after hosting the 2016 Summer Olympics, Rio is so broke that thousands of public workers are not being paid, or are being paid late in installments. Many budget items, from garbage collection to a community policing program, have been sharply reduced.


For many who live in Rio’s hundreds of favelas, or slums, an already hardscrabble existence feels increasingly precarious.


Maria de Pena Souza, 59, lives with her 24-year-old son in a small house with a zinc roof in the Lins favela in western Rio. They want to move because the home sits on a steep hill that is prone to deadly mudslides. But her son hasn’t been able to find work since finishing his military service a few years ago.


“I would leave if there was a way, but there isn’t,” said de Pena Souza, who added: “When it rains, I can’t sleep.”


The economic doldrums are clearly fueling the political comeback of former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, who from 2003 to 2010 presided over much of the boom. After leaving office with approval ratings over 80 percent, da Silva’s popularity plunged as he and his party were ensnared in corruption investigations. Da Silva is appealing a conviction and nearly 10-year sentence for corruption. But he still consistently leads preference polls for next year’s presidential election.


On the campaign trail, da Silva promises both a return to better economic times and refocusing on the poor.


“Lula is not just Lula,” da Silva said at a recent rally in Rio, using the name most Brazilians call him. “It’s an idea represented by millions of men and women. Prepare yourselves because the working class will return to govern this country.”
