The economic minister of newly inaguarated president Jair Bolsonaro is planning to privatize over 100 state owned companies as part of a push to decrease the bloated power of the state.

Brazil owns far too much of their countries economy and their business unfriendly policies have caused a massive debt crisis both public and personal, this is a bold and needed first step. On the chopping block are state owned credit cards, railroads, and the most evil predatory government scam ever invented: the lottery. WA and OR take note, follow Jair’s lead and privatize the lottery...

Will Brazil be the next superpower? Stay tuned!

Hopefully it goes well. I think the most important thing to stay tuned for is to whom these public companies are sold and in the manner that the sales take then what follows from how well the agencies run afterward. Unfortunately, Brazil does not strike me as a country with a strong tradition of rule of law (someone please correct me if I am wrong). I can easily imagine these agencies transforming from corrupt, bloated state-run bureaucracies, into corrupt, bloated privately-run companies granted as spoils to friends and allies of the present administration.

We shall see, however the current system is corrupt and there’s no doubt about that at all. Bolsonaro’s economic advisors are solid Chicago school free marketeers and those people detest corruption, and corruption can only exist truly with state intervention. It takes a state to grant privileges remember, so let’s hope for the best here.

I don’t know how much of this agenda will require congressional approval and as we found out with Trump, lack of willingness to do the right thing by legislators can easily crimp a solid agenda

Rampant political and civil corruption. A rush to sell off more than 100 State owned companies, what could go wrong?

Lastly- No sane Govt sells off a Lottery, massive money maker. I would buy shares in the winning company

The lottery is an immoral and evil institution. It’s set up purely to extract money from poor people and tell them that by giving up the little resources they have that can make them wealthy they are supporting education. It’s a pure scam

A sane government who’s officers exist to honor God would never set up such an institution

“Must” no, but everyone should strive towards virtue and moral behavior. It is exemplary of neither to run a scam that they put private actors in prison for in order to feed addictions and destroy families for profit

Err.. you do know Bolsonaro is in favour of the state killing its citizens and political opponents.

Hardly virtuous or moral behaviour.

Justifiable homicide during the course of police duties is just.

He has renounced dictatorship and pledged to follow the constitution

Extrajudicial killings are never just. Aren't you meant to be a libertarian??

The police killing armed criminals who pose a current immediate threat to society are not “extrajudicial killings” those are justified use of force

Yes, but that is not what Bolsonaro is supporting. He's supporting the police going round killing criminals rather than arresting them.
