Brazil Takes Off ~ The Country of Today!
Many thanks to the Economist for their special report on Brazil Getting It Together At Last. Famously known as perpetually the country of the future, it's now arriving. I've been hugely impressed with the MIT students from Brazil -- very entrepreneurial and motivated, key leaders of multiple clubs and activities here, and active in multiple key technology-business sectors including energy, education, media, finance, and more. Brazilian companies are entering the global ranks -- e.g. Vale, Embraer, InBev, etc -- and the country has multiple great cities, not the least of which are Rio and São Paulo. Very exciting!
