Floundering Brazil

    I see Brazil as too corrupt and too socialistic to really succeed. And the country’s population is no prize.

    I hate to sound so politically incorrect, but the more democracy filters down in Brazil, the more dysfunctional the country will become.

    IMHO, under no circumstances can Brazil succeed unless the West is booming, and that ain’t the case these days.

    “nobody can take growth for granted”

    Indeed. A pity we can’t match Sweden’s growth rate. Perhaps we should preach less and spend more time listening to and learning from other advanced nations.

    Starting with those thriving northern “blue”, or maybe purple, nations that long ago reformed their banking sectors: Sweden and Canada.
