If Brazil collapses

i.e., Bolsonarostan, under the weight of the P1 Covid variant.

Not good for the global economy. But as far as agriculture goes, the multi-national Ag corps kept them running during the credit crisis so I imagine they would here also.

Even though the ruling junta is made up of evil idiots, we need to do what we can to help.

Re: If Brazil collapses

Coffee harvest July-Nov., somewhat more labor intensive than highly mechanized grain farming.

Disclaimer- I have no idea if that would matter as far as completion goes. Also don’t know what the trajectory of the pandemic will be. I just know it is currently horrendous.

Re: If Brazil collapses

Brazil domestic consumption would suffer though.

Ethanol (sugar) meat (grains) and the rest of the region would feel it as well.

Theyre the largest coffee market on a per capita basis, by far.

10.8million recovered

300 thousand deaths

213 million population

Like here most will survive

Can't resist stirring the pot can you?

The entire medical system is collapsing and the case curve is going exponential.

Unlike here, where we’ll have 200M shots administered by May 1.

I’m sure that The Who Me Worry? caucus is also not concerned about a massive Petri dish cooking up ever more lethal, transmissible and elusive variants.

Also, if this thing gets away from us again and Round 2 hits, I doubt that money is going to fall from the skies on farmers like manna on the Israelites next time.

Re: If Brazil collapses

Brazil's exposure to Covid started the same way Italy's did.  Focused in a part of the country where Chinese workers travel to/from.  Like Gomer said:  SURPRISE, SURPRISE, SURPRISE!!

The petri dish is all along the U.S. border now...coming soon to a town near you. 
What an absolute crazy policy to let people enter our country illegally.
