Brazil cost
 n.— «Brazilian companies can be very productive….They all face, however, what is known as the “Brazil cost” to do business, which is paid when they have to ship products through bad highways in most of the country (the state of São Paulo is the exception in this case), an insufficient rail system, and outdated ports. That is one of the ways Brazilian companies and the country as a whole lose in the global competitiveness game.» —“Energy Tribune Speaks with Paulo Sotero” by Robert Bryce Energy Tribune (Houston, Texas) June 4, 2007.
