BRASILIA, April 25 (Reuters) - Economists cut their
forecasts for Brazil's inflation and interest rates in 2016 and
2017 as a deep recession helps curb price pressures, a weekly
central bank poll showed on Monday.
    Estimates for economic growth in 2016 were reduced for a
14th week, but forecasts for economic activity in 2017 improved
slightly as a political crisis threatens to cut short the
mandate of unpopular President Dilma Rousseff.
