Brazil, the world’s fifth largest country and seventh largest economy, has seen public optimism begin to level off after the heady days of fast economic growth, global diplomatic initiatives, and oil discoveries. Please join Michael Reid as he presents his book, Brazil: The Troubled Rise of a Global Power. The Economist’s Latin American Bello columnist and the former Americas editor, Reid will discuss the implications of country’s protests, the steady growth of foreign direct investment, Brazil’s foreign policy, and—on the eve of the World Cup kick-off—the impact of the mega-event on the country’s politics and development (and its team’s chances in the tournament).
- Michael Reid, author of Brazil: The Troubled Rise of a Global Power (June 2014)
- Christopher Sabatini, Senior Director of Policy, Americas Society/Council of the Americas and Editor-in-Chief, Americas Quarterly
Copies of the book will be available for sale.
