Great Decisions - Brazil

The administration of President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva has surprised many with its market-friendly approach. Will Brazil stay on this course or will the more aggressive populism of Venezuela's Hugo Chavez and others pull it to the Left? Dr. Antonio Brasil is a nationally-known journalist and Professor of Social Communication at Rio de Janeiro State University.
