Brazilian economy

I'm quoted in this story in the Rio Times about the Brazilian economy, with the main question being why is it slowing down, especially when compared to Mexico? This gets at my many posts on Latin American economies, China, and commodities. The more you rely on commodity exports to China, the more you will be hurt when China's appetite decreases.

That is true. Of course, even countries that don't export heavily to China will suffer when the Chinese economy begins to slow down markedly, as that process will have a significant, disruptive impact on world money supplies.
