The rift between Lula and BC heats up
The rift between the president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva (PT) with the Brazilian Central Bank, (responsible for combating inflation and in command of Selic rate) continues to shake up the backstage in Brasilia, demanding higher risk premium for those who lend money to the Brazilian government.
This morning, the DI contracts (Jan/2025) rose from 13.27% to 13.35% per annum. The contracts (Jan/2029) jumped from 13.33% to a rate of 13.40% per annum. This shows the degree of speculation in the interest rate market.
For Rafael Passo, an analyst at Ajax Investimentos, one of the BC’s points of concern with the Lula government is the unbridled expansion of credit.
“If the credit rates promoted by the government are not very sensitive to the BC’s actions, this could result in higher real interest rates because of their effects on the power of monetary policy”, he explains.
According to journalist Mônica Bergamo, from Folha de S. Paulo, Lula considers that Roberto Campos Neto betrayed the government’s trust and tries to drag the country into a recession.
Lula and ministers of his government seem to have deposited in the president of the central bank willingness to dialogue and participate in a joint effort so that the Brazil overcome economic problems.
