    Brazil remains a deeply and fundamentally corrupt country which is very unlikely to ever realize the potential of its natural and human resources.

    • Pait

      Andrew, you are full of shit.

      If you think you can generalize about a whole country based on prejudiced ignorance and maintain any semblance of credibility, well, unfortunately you may be right, but your audience will be composed of bigoted idiots.

  • PKCasimir

    Oh come on AI. Your liberal sympathies always shine through, even when recognizing that a leftist president, who, by the way, did everything he could to undermine the US’s position in the world, was a disaster. Oh, well he meant well and started out well. The facts say otherwise. Anyone who followed Lula in his early days knew that the social welfare policies he instituted were unsupportable in the long run.

    This is a very good short summary. No one who knows Brazil well would not be able to add much, or correct anything, in a short piece.

    It’s unfortunate that even such an excellent article mostly elicits prejudiced, superficial, and uniformed comments. I suppose one learns something about the nature of commenters from this fact.

    • PKCasimir

      Yes, one learns that some commentators are absolutely clueless when it comes to Brazil. Only someone totally ignorant of Brazil would call this a very good short summary.

      • Pait

        Troll.
