This month the Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff was in China to deal with economic questions, mainly in what it says respect to the trade balance. The Chinese ' ' they had closed in vermelho' ' with Brazil in 5 billions of dollar in 2010, in function of the Chinese exchange to be devaluated, therefore contrary case this value would be still bigger for the Latin country. Another subject of the guideline is that Brazil is a great exporter of substances cousins (although to export the airplanes of the Embraer) and a great consumer of industrialized products. Sad sina of the giant of the South America, the centuries in this position. What clearly it was not notified is that China is a dependent country. This exactly depends: of food and substances cousins. A geography professor mine said in the times of my graduation that no country that it possesss dependence really obtains to firm itself as great power.
This fact is excellent, therefore United States and Soviet Union, for example, were industrialized and possuam capacity to produce food and substances cousins. The European powers of another hour, had extended its territories (colonialismo) to obtain to become industrialized and with the Afro-Asian descolonizao the power if it was. Japan is a National State that always knew that it was predestinold to conquer or to lose. War lost 2, where it searched territories for substances cousins and food. He remained industrialized, but this year it lost ' ' 2 bigger economy of mundo' ' for the Chinese. It remains to know as China will obtain to supply with food and substances cousins in the next decades, therefore for more powerful than either, it will not be able to leave for military questions, where the American supremacy is inabalvel.
China would not fight at least with Russia. Observing more clearly, we see that in the Brazil-China relation, although the dependence to seem Brazilian, is not. China, giant, rich, with significant growth are powerful and are presented as such, but it will have that to yield always to continue to exist, either through the food, of the substances cousins and the energy. For China, Brazil is not vital an important partner and yes. Ivan Santiago Hisses is Gegrafo and author of the Brazil book: Imperialism and Integration in Latin America.
