Así que Lula acaba de lanzar todo el peso y prestigio de su figura detrás de la candidatura de Nicolás Maduro:

¿Por qué Lula hace esto?

Todos sabemos que Lula tiene una debilidad por los caudillos de izquierda. Pero el ex presidente brasileño también podría estar defendiendo los intereses de los empresarios de su país. Y, si es indecoroso que Dilma apoye públicamente a Maduro, ¿por qué no hacerlo él?

Reuters:

  • Venezuela, an oil producing nation that imports some 70 percent of its food, is now the third largest consumer of Brazilian beef and an important buyer of its chicken.
  • Over the past decade, Brazil’s exports to Venezuela soared by 533 percent to some $5 billion, making it Brazil’s second largest market in Latin America after Argentina, both major buyers of Brazilian manufactured goods. Economists say Brazil’s investments in Venezuela are around $20 billion.
  • Key infrastructure projects launched during the 14 years of Chavez’s government, from the Caracas metro expansion to bridges across the Orinoco river that divides Venezuela, are run by Brazilian firms like Odebrecht.
  • Odebrecht’s presence is so strong that Chavez even joked that he had tried to convert the firm’s president to socialism. The company has 8,000 employees in Venezuela, with nine projects, including a 2.15 megawatt dam in the Amazon.
  • Andrade Gutierrez, another Brazilian construction firm, has its largest project on the continent in Venezuela: a $3.8 billion steel plant.

A Brasil, pues, le conviene mantener el statu quo. Pocos países se han beneficiado tanto como la patria de Pelé del desmantelamiento del aparato productivo venezolano y del desprecio chavista por el concepto de licitación.

¿Cambiará esto cuando el PT abandone el poder?

Lo dudo.
