Untitled[edit]

I made the alteration of the political positions of the paper because I believe Folha de S. Paulo is not neutral at all and shows no center-left positions in its editorials. For instance, the paper recently published an article arguing that the country should rise its oil prices, even though it was already very close to autonomy and had no need to do so, in order to assure a fair competition with private business (when it would cost less for the Brazilian economy to subsidize the few private company of the oil business). That is certainly a neoliberal position, as is the paper's defence of the idea of "choque de gestão", one of the variations of the minimum state. In its editorial, Folha de S. Paulo usually takes on a liberal stance in social issues, such as abortion, gay rights etc., but it defends the same economic policies the Fiesp (Federação das indústrias do estado de São Paulo - the most important association of businessmen in Brazil). It may be in favour of development and even progressist, but it's not center-left, as it favours capital in stead of labour. - Manuel

So what...[edit]

...does "Folha" mean anyway? The whole thing comes out to "[...] of Sao Paulo". 68.39.174.238 (talk) 17:20, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

"Folha" literally means "paper" in Portuguese. --Nadir D Steinmetz 15:51, 6 February 2008 (UTC)
Not really; "Folha" literally means "sheet". Tsf (talk) 12:11, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

Strange[edit]

"Recently, Folha de São Paulo have caused sanitary disturbance with political intent. In one episody, the journal published several articles about a suposed epidemy of yellow-fever - wich was not occuring, and what let lots of brazilians to take vacin again and get ill because of it. In the end, more people dyied by taking unnecessary vacin than by yellow-fever itself, since there was no epidemy at all."

Fractured English, suggests motive. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.44.176.35 (talk) 02:40, 11 November 2009 (UTC)
