I received an article from The Wall Street Journal with this title:
"TAX-HAPPY BRAZIL HITS THE WALL". What exactly this phrase means?
Thanks for helping me.

To "hit the wall" means that it was stopped abruptly, or met obstacles.

You will have to read the article to see how and why this happened.

And "Tax-happy" means that there are very many taxes in Brazil.
