Lowering The Interest Rate
In particular Brazil’s economy has been on the verge of recession since the middle of 2011. On April 18. 2012 Brazil lowered its interest rate for the third time. It’s now at an extremely low rate of 9 percent. The purpose for doing this to keep money circulating in the economy. If the there’s a low interest rte companies and people that borrow money will have more money to keep to themselves and to keep circulating. Brazil’s hope is that the low interest rate will spur spending and spark a return to the high growth rates that made the country one of the world’s most dynamic economies.
