Striking in Brazil

A trucker strike in Brazil has affected the movement of commodities such as soybeans and poultry and has slightly affected markets with the possibility of greater consequences if the strike continues. I encourage you to look over the article Brazilian Trucker Strike from Ag Web then discuss with others the impact this has on Brazil, the United States, and other countries around the world.

Discussion Questions

  1. What has caused the truckers to strike in Brazil?
  2. What has been the ramifications of the truckers strike within Brazil?
  3. How has the strike impacted markets globally? What do you foresee happening if this is not resolved by the weekend as speculated?
  4. While globally many have seen a decline in oil prices why has Brazil seen an increase?
  5. Why have exports from Brazil not been widely impacted yet?
  6. Could you ever see something like this happening in your home country? Justify your response.
