12:22 pm
a recession also this week is india's prime minister six another term we ask has he managed to keep his election promises from the last time and what does the sale of the ride hailing app karim to tell us about the way acquisitions and investments are happening in the age of the tech giants. so it's been over one hundred days since brazil's right wing president. came into power and in that time while the stock markets burst through the one hundred thousand point mark which is a historic achievement but one perhaps more in hope and expectation of what paulson are it could achieve because the reality is rather more grim consider this efforts to save two hundred sixty billion dollars through much needed pension reforms stuck in political wrangling the economy is expected to grow in just two percent less than the two and a half percent forecast unemployment now hovering around twelve percent and belsen
12:23 pm
are his approval rating is the lowest for a president since the country returned to democracy three decades ago now on a recent trip to the united states he and donald trump promised to reset relations between the two countries however both american ceded marchin received little in return on the prospect of a trade deal between the united states and china that could actually be crippling for brazil's famines and that's where we're going to start this week the reality of brazil's economy as told by those literally at the grassroots level. has this report now from the state of mato grosso where brazil soy farmers fear for their own livelihoods. brazil is one of the world's. produces a matter is the biggest producer in brazil china is brazil's biggest export market and about half of that is commodities. so when it might do it shopping elsewhere brazilian farmers take note. when we have china negotiating with the u.s.
12:24 pm
in these conditions almost obliged to buy from the united states that is going to have. about five thousand workers who are employed in harvesting to. one hundred seventy thousand tons just on this twenty seven thousand hectare property. without the chinese buyers it will be complicated we're following the latest news in the papers and we're really worried brazil's big agri business mostly backed the winning candidate. in last year's presidential elections. far more trade with china than the us the new president. aging is not on his itinerary or the talks go on in washington in beijing to try to resolve their trade differences it's unlikely they take into account the future of these workers on the other side of the walls but these men although they have no say a very attentive their livelihoods depend on it i.
12:25 pm
was founded in seventeen nineteen joining a gold rush in the gold ran out. the collective until the arrival of big agriculture. in the late twentieth century the city grew rapidly from fifty thousand inhabitants to more than six hundred thousand today. parts is white gold. is used in more than two hundred sub products you can find it in medicine cosmetics but it's most important use is as protein for eating livestock that converts into animal protein for the population the world's demand is huge producers here like gold will not run out but they must have. for now brazilian soil produces. waiting to see which way the international trade winds blow. well joining us here in the studio is. though he is the residence professor at northwestern university
12:26 pm
here in katherine a latin america and it's lovely to have you with us hiero not jairo like the here like the president so we've just seen a report there about the soy farmers in brazil who are worried about the potential trade deal or trade wars and all these issues between the united states and china these are the people who they tend the land they are the backbone of of an economy grassroots how worried should they be teasing i think there must be very very worried because one of the things is that agriculture in brazil in terms of employment terms of realty for poor people or for certain areas of pollution is very important but the overall economy. is not bad imports and it's only six percent of the g.d.p. meanwhile you have thirty percent of the u.p.a. from an industry and seventy percent for the service so for the demonstration of your will so narrow this was one of the things they're more willing to sacrifice if
12:27 pm
they get more access for their industry and that's a very key point can i look at some other issues with you as well as we look more mr bowles in our own self himself and what he's trying to do he wants to save money by cutting pensions hundreds of billions of dollars yeah i mean how i guess sound an idea is that i mean you're touching people's pensions that this is a delicate area if we put it that yes and they the one of the problems of bras of the resilient economy is that it has a huge public sector and that public sector of the pensions are mostly in the public sector related to the public sector and that sector is very powerful influential within their minister and i'm not sure how much luck mr paulson are will have in that sector but for him is crucial to cut the deficit and this means reducing and between cutting the pensions and cutting privatization they expect in the next ten years to save nearly. three hundred billion dollars that mean is that
12:28 pm
enough that would be enough to buntin the deficit on the you know seventy percent sixty percent which means there brazil will pay less in the deps ervice other moment a huge part of the budget of those who goes to pay the service of the debt as all that in american countries at the moment is that going to be possible that's more about politics image and also not a house to draw a hemorrhage or for the moment he's of the lowest rates of popularity in the history of. this is what i was going to ask you about. does that matter i guess you know there are a lot of politicians who say all polls whatever he's only been in power for one hundred days but to be that low what can he do to fix that it matters a lot in brazil because one of the things on the left in brazil feels they feel cheated you know they feel that they put in prison so he couldn't run again so they the left brazil is ready to mobilize itself to really act quickly against also not
12:29 pm
all worn with a vote that was not only from the right here a lot of appeal within the left and with the popular sector many poor people voted for also not all but they are increasingly growing impatient with the ministrations promises of economy grow on employment is something around twelve percent and brazil's growth forecast was cut this week so it's less than there was even x. men then some of the companies big companies like pharmaceutical companies are now announce they're going to stop production in brazil so a lot of people who would produce employment which is in salaries decent salaries they want people want and expect to live in brazil regionally how secure is brazil i'm just thinking venezuela has obviously dominated our thoughts for a long time we've seen the spillover of that in canonically into into other countries as brazil ok yeah brazil has much of stronger institution right and if anything will drift you know to the conservation of power of the current
12:30 pm
institutions i don't think that's that's going to be the case but really speaking of brazil's finance are very varietals they big exports i mean brazil is a has a surplus in exports you know but still exports over two hundred billion dollars and imports something around one hundred fifty three billion dollars that that is a very important feature of its strength but a lot of those exports goes into the latin american market for example argentina part i why and those markets also economy are quite quite fry. the quite week one of things we have to start and i was going to say and so is that why mr paulson are looks elsewhere you know he's been meeting trump he met netanyahu with religion and reelected making sure that there are other minds out there yeah well the united states market has also been a traditional market in and of course news of also not a would would want the united states to be again it is remarkable but structurally that is a long way to take because that would mean and again we're going back to interests
12:31 pm
that would mean that brazil will have to develop certain areas of the industry that could compete in the united states with china it's easier because they export commodities there roma things that brazil has one of the big criticism against their boss around administration has been the flex the flexible approach to go there as a flexible approach the approach that he adopted towards for example environmental a situation where he do you really believe there are series of arias but he's doing that because he knows that to get to the chinese market at the moment it's the mining and it's raw material that he needs to export so he's trying to flex eliza to increase the potential of the economy he needs cash flow at the moment he needs to increase the the export surplus but he also needs money to develop all the area and he knows industrial production which is where he's probably his hopes are take a long time it's been a pleasure talking to thank you for joining us. and still ahead this week on counting the cost educated but jobless in iraq we're looking at where the private
12:32 pm
investors can succeed in creating jobs where the government is failing. right now that we are looking at here where a month long election process involving up to nine hundred million voters has begun now prime minister narendra modi is widely expected to win another term in coalition with other parties even though his pledge to create ten million jobs and to increase manufacturing with his make in india campaign has been a failure so how rahman's been speaking to people about their hopes from the next indian government. to millions of indians the wheels of life don't stop turning and that includes those like migrant worker top one course from the state of west bengal in the east of the country he's been a rickshaw rider in new delhi for twenty years with few job opportunities moving to the big city was the only way to support his family. it would be wonderful if my son and daughter get an education that's my only wish and nothing else as
12:33 pm
a responsible rule water i go to great lengths to cast my vote but the politicians take my vote and then disappear where is the promised help millions of workers have converged on india's major cities to find ways to survive economic pressures back home they're relying on politicians to keep their election promises to the. millions of indians voters for the bharatiya janata party b j p led by a right wing populist leader in the red remote in twenty fourteen he promised a lot to the electorate especially the young and. if we want the country to progress then we need to develop their skills that's my mission this is my promise to develop skill india where the promises were made that where there is training something. so hope was really rising but in forty years nothing happened you know ninety five percent of startups have failed i don't see any indian a start up making up even now after four years. in the capital new delhi aspiring
