    “overcoming poverty and inequality” ?????
    Somewhat strange for Inequality…knowing that Brazil has one of the World Highest Social and Wealth Inequality !

    Even more strange for Poverty in view of your GDP per capita, which is one of the highest for EMERGING countries, that the country still has a HIGHER poverty rate…than many emerging nations not as wealthy (per capita) than Brazil is !

    Instead of telling what others should/must do…you better COPY WHAT/HOW THEY DO ! No doubt that the Brazilian Poverty & Inequality….will be reduced at a far higher speed !

    Same for Education and Infrastructure ! YOU LAG BY A WIDE MARGIN NEARLY ALL EMERGING NATIONS ON A GDP PER CAPITA COMPARISON !
    Many articles with stats have been written on these subjects, including in this site !

    Simple as that and I challenge anyone to prove me wrong !
