This is not the story of Brazil as you know it. It's a fundamental shift. A potential game–changer.
A new Brazil is emerging on the world stage. Brazil today is one of the fastest growing players in the global economy, a bio–fuels pioneer on the fast track to energy self–sufficiency, a booming haven for foreign investment, and a test case for a new approach to governance in Latin America.
Can Brazil successfully chart a new path that overcomes the country's grinding poverty and its tide of violent crime, while still preserving the country's unique environment?
Will the new Brazil continue as a strategic partner for the United States or could it become a formidable competitor? How will the rest of the world accommodate Brazil's seemingly unstoppable growth?
In Brazil Rising, veteran public radio journalist David Brown takes listeners on a personal journey across the country, exploring Brazil's view of itself, its neighbors, and the world.
