RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - The Brazilian government wants to sell everything. This is not a journalistic exaggeration or an attempt to capture the readers' attention: it is the literal words of Jair Bolsonaro's economic 'wunderkind', the ultra-liberal Economy Minister Paulo Guedes, and of Salim Mattar, the secretary-general of privatizations, a figure whose mere existence is a statement of intent.
Beyond the rhetoric, they have already set to work, demonstrating that they are giving it their all in a privatization plan that began at the time of Michel Temer, but that gained momentum with Bolsonaro coming to power . . .
