Brazil's Future: Scenarios for 2017 and 2018 May 15th Event

At the outset of the century, Brazil was one of the world’s fastest-growing economies. In 2017, it faces political, economic, and moral crises. What were the causes of this drastic shift? Are there prospects for beneficial political and economic change in 2017? Will the 2018 Brazilian election offer a way to move beyond the corruption, political turmoil, and economic mismanagement that have plagued the country in recent years?

On May 15, Hudson Institute’s Center for Latin American Studies hosted a discussion with Rubens Antonio Barbosa, former Brazilian ambassador to the United States. Ambassador Barbosa offered remarks on the outlook for Brazil and the policies needed to turn around Brazil’s economy. Hudson Senior Fellow Ambassador Jaime Daremblum moderated the discussion.
