Brazil's Goldfajn says slower inflation makes room for lower rates

Inflation eased much more than expected in November, boosting market bets that the central bank could accelerate the pace of rate cuts in its January meeting. (Reporting by Thais Freitas; Writing by Bruno Federowski; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
