I wonder how they think money with no backing is going to help?
Typical credit cards have interest rates between 7 and 36% in the USA, depending largely upon the bank's risk evaluation methods and the borrower's credit history. Brasil has much higher interest rates, about 50% over that of most developing countries, which average about 200% (Economist, May 2006)
