4. What is the real growth rate for the economy (GDP)? What appears to be the trend for the economy? Why is this significant?
The GDP for Australia is 3.5% while Brazils is almost double with a GDP of 7.5%. Both companies has similar trends. This information is important because it can tell you where the
