Brazil GTS Students

Brazil’s economy is growing fast. It is the largest economy in Latin America and one of the 7th-largest in the world. As one of the world’s four major emerging economies, it’s experiencing high rate of economic growth combined with unprecedented political and economic stability and reductions in inequality, all of which have lead to rapid expansion of the middle class, high flows of foreign investment, and positive publicity abroad. Yet at the same time, Brazil struggles with unequal income distribution, high levels of corruption, poor infrastructure, major environmental protection challenges, and low-quality public services despite high taxes..
