Brazil’s Real drops 40 cents amid presential bribe scandal


The Brazilian Real has dropped almost 40 cents comparing to the U.S. Dollar this Thursday (05.18). The dollar in Brazil is now worth R$ 3.38.

The devaluation is after a political that involved a bribe between the country’s largest meat maker and packaging company, JBS, and the president of the nation, Michel Temer. Usually, when the Brazilian currency value drops, grain exports tend to grow.
