SAO PAULO, Nov 10 (Reuters) - Brazilian economists lowered
their expectations for the country's economic growth rate for
this year and next, according to a weekly central bank poll
released Monday.
    Brazil's economy should eke out just 0.2 percent growth in
2014 and 0.80 percent growth in 2015, according to the median
forecasts in a survey of about 100 financial institutions. 
    Analysts also revised their expectations for inflation lower
for this year, but higher for 2015. Expectations for Brazil's
exchange rate were raised to 2.50 reais per dollar for 2014 and
2.60 reais per dollar at the end of 2015.
