funniest comment I have read today. Brazil's government is no less corrupt than the government in the US - they just label corruption in a different manner in the US. So I can gaurantee you that much like US stocks didn't disappear in 2008-2009, Brazilian stocks won't disappear either. In fact, this seems like a typical panic moment in the Brazilian stock market, which means it's time to buy, even though I have no idea when the stocks will recover. It could be a few years or next week. Who knows.
