..Peru’s import and export figures per month, January 2008 to August 2009.
On the plus side, there is clearlt a slow, gradual increase in the monthly numbers for 2009. This is as much to do with the typical 12 month business cycle as anything else, but it must be a positive that the last four months have shown continued improvement.
The bottom line is that Peru has been through a hard landing, though you’d never believe it the way the idiots that ran them over the cliff are lauded by the idiots that encouraged them. But life goes on and the world has decided it wants copper and gold in 2009. Peru got lucky.
