Brazil is a country at a crossroads. The next step is crucial to the nation’s future.
It’s one thing to steer a government when things are going well. But what happens when the path becomes less clear? What happens when a country faces that fork in the road?
The Crossroads video series from the Bertelsmann Foundation’s Global Economic Dynamics (GED) team focuses on these decisive moments for emerging markets.
Sometimes countries face economic turmoil. Sometimes countries face political crises. From time to time, countries must address social tumult. Brazil, a country so recently on the rise, faces all three at once.
The latest episode of The Crossroads features commentary from Joaquim Levy, Arminio Fraga, Otaviano Canuto and many more, while GED’s Samuel George takes us to the heart of a country at the crossroads.
It’s decision time. Which way will Brazil go?
