Brazil's Haddad says market likes Bolsonaro because it sees easy profits

BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazil’s leftist presidential candidate Fernando Haddad said on Wednesday that investors prefer his far-right opponent Jair Bolsonaro because they see quick gains in the privatization of state companies that he would pursue.

Calling himself a moderate, Haddad said he would not name a banker as his finance minister if elected in the Oct. 28 run-off. “It would have to be someone committed to production and not easy profits,” he said at a news conference with foreign reporters.
