Similarities Between PT and Centão – Opinion



PT Deputy and President Glasey Hoffmann took the floor in the House to criticize the Public Companies Act for precisely what makes it fundamental to public morality and good governance: the right to veto the appointment of politicians to run these companies. It is no coincidence that the Glazy case coincides with that of Centrão, which also seeks to restore the possibility of allocation of positions in state companies, in particular, in Petrobras.

PT is, in Anthony Garotinho’s immortal definition, a “small-mouthed party,” a characteristic that, despite obvious ideological differences, makes it very similar to the Centrão parties, which have always been guided by sinecures and prebends. The difference is that PT members are promoted to supply the state and make it work for their power project, while Centrão is content with access to monetary and electoral advantages. For the country it does not matter: in both cases, public administration is squandered in favor of private interests.

PT and Centrão’s preferred target is obviously Petrobras, which Lula da Silva and Chamber President Arthur Lira consider the devil. This group did not like the Public Companies Act at all, because it stated that Petrobras should be run by professionals in the oil sector, not the looting sector.

In his speech before the House of Representatives, Glasey Hoffmann said, if you think about it, the Public Company Act “criminalizes politics.” It was no longer the State Companies Act that criminalized politics, but the parties that took Petrobras by storm during the Lulopetista Mandarin. The State Companies Law is precisely the civilized response to the barbarism of the oilmen and the brazen political use of Petrobras for election purposes, which nearly bankrupted the company.

The purpose of PT and Centrão are articles 16 and 17 of Law 13.303/2016. Article 17 requires managers to have professional experience and prohibits ministers, party leaders, trade unionists and Legislative Assembly mandate holders from holding positions, as well as persons with a conflict of interest. For PT, the introduction of minimum parameters for the selection of directors and directors of state-owned companies is a discriminatory attitude – even after many years, the PT administration led to Petrobras admitting a write-off of 6.2 billion reais for corruption and spending 100 reais. billion fuel adjustments.

Article 16, in turn, subjects the administrator of public companies to the rules of private sector governance. By including it in the charter, Petrobras made it clear that the members of the Board of Directors and the Board of Executive Directors are individually and jointly and severally liable for the actions they take and for losses resulting from such actions. This means that managers may have to pay for reckless management out of their own pockets. It is no coincidence that it has become one of the most effective means of preventing the looting of state-owned companies: it is very easy to squander other people’s money when there is a guarantee of impunity. For this reason, the last three presidents of Petrobras, chosen by Jair Bolsonaro, when they were forced to adopt an interventionist policy in the name of his re-election, chose to resign.

The Law on State Companies is an important milestone in the history of the country. This was a moral salvation for public companies and brought undeniable results – 2015 was the last year when a group of federal state-owned companies recorded losses. Profitable companies generate taxes that can be used to improve people’s lives, increase investment, and spur growth. Poorly managed companies, by contrast, are fighting for scarce budgetary deduction space in order to survive. The reality of the facts, however, is irrelevant to those who only think about making a minimally persuasive campaign speech like Bolsonaro; for those who want to divide the state apparatus among their friends, like PT; or for those who only think about guaranteeing a piece of power, no matter who is in the presidency from 2023 onwards, like Centrão.

The dollar continues to reflect the political scenario



The dollar continues to reflect the political scenario

Yesterday, financial agents evaluated the opposite decision of the Federal Supreme Court (STF) regarding the so-called secret budget. In addition, a decision was made by STF Minister Gilmar Méndez to issue an injunction that would exclude the Bolsa Família from the spending cap rule, with investors trying to understand how this measure would affect the processing of the transitional PEC in the Chamber of Deputies. Oh this PEC!!!!

Since he is an exchange investor, any reading that the budget will be exceeded or become more flexible will negatively affect the exchange market, whether through the PEC or in any other way. We will continue with volatility today.

Looking beyond, the US Central Bank (Fed), although slowing down the pace of monetary tightening at its December meeting, issued a tougher-than-expected statement warning that its fight against inflation was not yet over, raising fears that rising US interest rates will push the world’s largest economy into recession.

The currency market continues to react to political news. The voting on the PEC is saved for today. It is expected that it will indeed be reviewed to open the way tomorrow for discussions on the 2023 budget.

Yesterday, the spot price closed the selling day at R$5.3103.

For today on the calendar we will have an index of consumer confidence in the eurozone. Good luck and good luck in business!!

The EU has reached a political agreement on limiting gas prices – 19.12.2022



Germany sentenced Russian to life imprisonment for political murder by order of Moscow - 12/15/2021
BRUSSELS, DECEMBER 19 (ANSA). European Union countries reached a political agreement on Monday (19) to impose a natural gas price ceiling of 180 euros per megawatt hour (MWh). The main sources of income for Russia and the minimization of the use of energy as a weapon by the regime of Vladimir Putin.

The agreement was approved by a supermajority at a ministerial meeting of member states in Brussels, Belgium, after months of discussions about the best way to contain the rise in natural gas prices in the bloc caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. .

The value set by the countries is well below the proposal made by the European Commission, the EU’s executive body, in November: 275 EUR/MWh. However, the countries leading the cap campaign were in favor of an even lower limit, around 100 EUR/MWh.

Germany, always wary of price controls, voted in favor of 180 euros, while Austria and the Netherlands, also skeptical of the cap, abstained. Hungary, the most pro-Russian country in the EU, voted against.

The instrument will enter into force on 15 February, but only if natural gas prices on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange exceed 180 euros/MWh for three consecutive days. In addition, the difference compared to a number of global benchmarks should be more than 35 euros.

Italy, the EU’s biggest supporter of the ceiling, has claimed responsibility for the measure. “This is a victory for Italy, which believed and worked for us to reach this agreement,” Environment and Energy Minister Gilberto Picetto tweeted.

“This is a victory for Italian and European citizens who demand energy security,” he added.

Currently, the gas price in Amsterdam is around 110 EUR/MWh, which is already a reflection of the agreement in Brussels – in August the figure even broke the barrier of 340 EUR/MWh.

However, Russia has already threatened to stop exports to countries that adhere to the ceiling. (ANSA).
