People are asking me in the streets if I have anything to do with Batista's "X" group.
The answer of course is no. It is just a coincidence.
Batista is putting me in dire straits in the stock exchange, actually (he and dilma)
Companies come and go; succeed and fail taking risks, and this makes for a healthy economy.
But taking risks with the taxpayer money and face limited liability on the top of it is another story altogether. CEF and BNDE are the most important lenders to Batista's X group. And they do it with our money, at subsidized rates. Now, if one can harness other people's money without asking them and at very low rates, one may well go for a highly risky bet and hope it pays off. If it doesnt, it was not one's money to begin with.
The kings did that in the past. It was a bit more brutal, but certainly less murky.
