BRAZIL. The geographical giant of the South continues to be a politically different reality within the traditions, the characteristics, and the experiences of the Continent: from monarchy and Empire to the first Republic, to the Vargas regime (Estado Novo), to the second Republic, to the military rule (1964/1982), to the general election of 1982, to the impeachment of president Fernando Collor de Mello, to recent decisions about monarchy or republic, to...?

Nonetheless, according to the surprising opinion of the authors, Brazil’s social inequities grew even more glaring. Its income distribution was among the world’s most unequal, its school dropout rate was the highest, and its backward Northeast continued to harbor the greatest pocket of human misery in the Americas [but] remained a protectionist island whose once impressive industrialization had now been eclipsed by the high growth rates (and greater social equity!) of such dynamic East Asian capitalist economies as Taiwan and South Korea.
