The Emergence Of Brazil As An Economic Powerhouse

Sao paulo brazil buildingsThanks to the commodities boom, Brazil has emerged on the world scene as a new economic powerhouse. This has not gone unnoticed by foreign investors who have been pouring billions of dollars into Brazil in an effort to capture some of the vast potential for profit. While it has only been a few years since Brazil was on the verge on economic disaster, it appears they have been able to turn things around in the country--and this time change may be for good.

I read a great article from The Wall street Journal this morning about Brazil that is definitely worth your time to read. The article talks about Brazil’s past problems, how they are overcoming them, some current investments happening in the country and even a little about the future prospects for Brazil.

In my opinion Brazil is here to stay. They are one of the few energy-independent countries in the world, they have the largest supply of fresh water in the world (Some think that water resources will soon be in higher demand than oil), they are packed full of just about every other natural resource you can think of, their currency has strengthened and stabilized and their government--while not perfect--has shown remarkable growth. As the government continues to grow and strengthen, and as they continue to combat the corruption and bureaucracy that is still holding them down, the sky is truly the limit for this country.
