        The Brazil coin R$ (Real) it's 4x weaker than dollar, and the taxes are soo much high. The Playstation 4 cost, on release, $400, in Brazil it was used to cost R$4000 = $1000.

        Sla só queria falar alguma colsa msm hehe.

                              "If the country is doomed to fail"...se esse cara viu todos esses problemas do Brazil o que ele não diria do seu país que também concentra população em duas costas e uma delas está ameaçada de um grande terremoto e se separar do continente, sem falar que em um cataclisma o oceano inundaria o meio do país ? E que tal conviver com furacões?!!

                                  Let's be real for a minute: Brazil isn't going to be at the same table as the US, Europe, or China. It'll bet lucky to be a first world country one day, nevermind being a superpower. Know what I mean? I think you do.

                                                                edit: favelas só existem por conta de desigualdade social e por conta da geografia do Brasil, muitas vezes elas sao feitas em lugares onde não se pode construir por um motivo, seja em area protegida, por causa da resistência do solo q gera deslizamento de terra e problema de fundação que mata muita gente em desabamento

Nos dias de hoje não há mais terras ruins, pois existe uma coisa chamada correção de solos, é muito comum no nosso Centro Oeste que por sinal já se tornou a maior fronteira agrícola do Brasil. Você já ouviu falar da ferrovia Norte Sul? Precisa se atualizar, pois esse teu vídeo está cheio de informações equivocadas.

About 82 percent of our energy matrix is from clean and renewable sources, while the world is only 24 percent, the people who are criticizing Brazil are no example and have no dignity to criticize us, since the energy matrix from their countries depend on oil and coal, especially france and germany our biggest critics. And I want to see macron continue with this talk of internationalizing our territory, and come with the idea of invading here, apparently the france likes to lose diplomatic and warlike conflicts to Brazil, the last defeat was in the 1960s in the so-called war. of lobsters.

You should know more, because what is not foreign wanting to buy land for agriculture here, without flaring that the tropital climate of Brazil is great for that, since food producing plants called c3 plants need sunlight and CO2 to do photosynthesis and produce food .. According to foreign experts, Brazil is an ideal country to build railroads because it has few mantains and many plains and plateaus. When it comes to the issue of large cities having no room to grow, the city of Sao Paulo should be studied more than the Brazilian megalopolis, and the fourth largest in the world.

Devia se informar mais , por que o que nao e estrangeiro querendo comprar terras para agricultura aqui, sem flar que o clima tropital do brasil e otimo para isso, ja que as plantas que produzem comida chamadas plantas c3 precisam da luz do sol e CO2 para fazer fotossintese e produzir alimentos.

                                                                                Also lower taxes on the poor, raise them on the rich. Brazil has very high taxes. Punish monopolies and corporations with antitrust laws like the US has done in the past.

But I think the video would be to long to cover countries political and corruption problems. I also think that if you try to cover politics its very difficult to be unbiased. It is call geography. Keep up the good work.

I don't know why you mentioned India as if it richer or more developed than Brazil. That is not true at all..... ohhhh I forgot these type of documentaries are made to put down other countries...
