"Brazil on the Rise" author speaking on campus
Today Brazil is not only the world's eighth largest economy with a vibrant democracy; it has achieved energy independence, and its discovery of the largest oil field thus far this century should soon make it a major energy exporter. With its successful bid as host for the 2016 Olympics and the soccer World Cup in 2014, Brazil is at last ready to take its place on the global stage. What led to the transformation?  Journalist Larry Rohter will present on this topic on Nov. 11th: see more details on the left.
