Well, this is really
off-topic but is interesting to explain to you why this particular plan worked. The plan worked because he killed the inertial inflation
, a very serious, cancerous
problem on Brazil some time ago. Brazilian traders also were (and still are) extremely
corrupt and greedy, raising prices every fucking day
if they had nothing to stop them... The plan also killed this fundamental point by allowing the Brazilians like me to buy cheap overseas, forcing local merchants to sell at lower prices or having to file for bankruptcy. This killed one of the biggest motivators for the hyperinflation.
But it is a pity that the next government threw most of it away when leave Real depreciate. Because when the government did it, he has made foreign goods expensive again and it left the door open for our merchants (who still corrupt and very, very greedy) start all over again.
