Brazil shares with Turkey the rank of countries with the highest interest, inflation and unemployment rates, according to a survey released this Sunday (8) by the G1 portal. Data from the Austin Rating rating agency indicate that only the two countries present the three indicators above 10%.
In comparison with other nations, the survey shows that Spain and South Africa, for example, have higher unemployment rates than Brazil, but have lower interest rates and lower inflation. At the same time, Russia and Argentina are experiencing the highest basic interest and inflation scenarios in the world, but with unemployment below 10%.
Thus, only Brazil and Turkey present unfavorable numbers in the three indicators, which are fundamental to guide economic analyses. The data consider the reality of March and April 2022, but also evaluating previous months.
A retrospective analysis shows that Brazil has not recorded such high levels of these indices since 2016, when a recession brought several economic challenges to the country.
Austin Rating points out that this combination of high rates took place over a period of four months at the time. The analysis considers data compiled by the Continuous National Household Sample Survey (Pnad), of the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE), since 2012.
