I am now working on a thesis on Brazilian economy. Brazilian, a 2-faced nation as I call it, because in one hand it shows great potential in new technology(using sugarcane to make special substitue for Gas), and industrial development. But on the other hand, the overly-widened income inequaliy result in social instability. My point is, unless someone can do something to narrow down the income gap, all the advances in technology and industry will be eaten up by the inequality, and the economy of the nation will crumble down to nothing. Do you agree with it?
