April 2013: Spotlight on Brazil
The economic climate in Brazil has radically improved, and its government's focus on stabilizing the economy has generated miraculous results. Brazil has become an engine for job creation, which in turn has successfully brought millions of lower-income families into the middle class. As a vibrant middle class has arisen, so has consumer demand for goods and real estate within and outside of Brazil. This issue of Global Perspectives looks at how the Brazilian market has grown, its current challenges and outlook for the future, and where international money has been flowing. Ola and welcome to Brazil!
