Brazil central bank cuts 2011 growth forecast to 3.5%
Brazil’s central bank has lowered its forecast for economic growth to less than half of last year’s, partly blaming the slowing global economy.
The central bank lowered its prediction for growth in 2011 to 3.5%, from 4% that it expected in June.
Brazil has boomed as other countries have stalled, growing 7.5% last year.
The bank pointed to “the deterioration in the international outlook” for the downgrade, and also to spending cuts enacted by President Dilma Rousseff.
The central bank said there could be further “moderate” cuts to the basic interest rate, which was lowered in August to 12%, from 12.5%.
In February, the Brazilian government will implement 50bn reais ($30bn; £19bn) of spending cuts in order to curb inflation and help prevent the economy from overheating.

It wasn’t so long ago that the Blonde Bimbo announced on TV that Brazil could weather any effect from the global economic situation.
Really, she’s got no idea!
This is just affirming what I predicted the moment the polls closed and we had an overweight Barbie for a presedenta.
Brazil urges ban on Gisele Bundchen TV lingerie ad
Brazil’s ministry for women has called for a TV advertisement featuring supermodel Gisele Bundchen in her underwear to be suspended.
The ministry has asked the advertising authorities to ban the lingerie ad, which it says “reinforces the erroneous stereotyping of women as sex objects”.
In the ad, a scantily-clad Ms Bundchen distracts her husband while telling him bad news, such as damaging the car.
In 2010, the ministry secured the ban of a beer ad featuring Paris Hilton.
The advertisement “ignores the progress made in ending sexist practices. It also represents discrimination against women”, the ministry said in a statement.
The TV campaign sends a message “that sensuality can melt any man” and “encourages Brazilian women to use their charms… to minimise the reactions of their husbands”, it said.

What a load of bullshit. If she was selling cars she would be out of context.
Personally, I find Gisele to be a scrawny bint without an ounce of sexuality. Sorry, Gisele, but put some meat on your bones you’re a pathetic example for women everywhere and only serve to encourage sicknesses like bulimia nervosa. As if the world doesn’t have enough shit.
But you can guarantee one thing; the blonde bimbo presidenta (Dilma Rousseff), will get her way making a fool of herself as usual and have the ad banned by government interference. Now, if the blonde bimbo banned all scrawny skeletal models from the fashion industry, she would be doing the world a favour!
Gisele; sex object… Hahaha, she is not!
