    Brazil a poor country?

    (1) The GDP of Brazil is 2.02 trillion Dollars, the 8th largest in the World. Largest than Canada and Italy, two G7 members;

    (2) Brazil has a well developed industry that makes almost all that we Brazilians need;

    (3) Brazil has 15% in high class and 51% in middle class;

    (4) No more than 6% of all Brazilians lives in the slums;

    (5) Even 95% of the homes in the slums has TV and refrigerator, 68% has DVD Player/recorder, 48% has washing machine, 12% has computers. The percentual In middle & high class is 100% in all of these items;

    (6) Brazil exports less than 10% of the GDP, so, Brazilians sustain their own economy. More than 90% (1,8 trilion Dollars) is Brazilian money;

    (7) Brazilian government gives the text/exercise books and laptops for free to any student;

    (8) Brazil has it own space programm with Brazilian technology and money;

    (9) Many Brazilians in middle class, and all in high class has a life of dreams just in their own country. They don't need money from any foreigner. Much less from a country sank in a economic crisis;

    (10) Brazilian women are independant. More than 50% of the families has a woman as chief;

    (11) Where you can find a rich foreigner guy? In the nations with no money like that where the crisis was originated (Europe and USA)? I don't believe; and,

    (12) What kind of Brazilian women you know: that ridicule stereotypes in the movies (brown spanish speakers with names not used in Brazil like Dolores, Lupita and others, who goes to USA working as cleaner/maid looking for a green card) or these kind of REAL BRAZILIAN WOMEN:

    Do you believe that all these women are crying for some foreigner money?

    I'm Brazilian and I know what I'm telling you. If you prefer to believe in any retard, like some idiots who post bullsh*ts in Yahoo! Answers, Ok. Its your right.

    It's very, very easy for any retard to write a lot of foolish based on stereotypes he saw in a danm film or some videos about the slums and poverty in Brazil. You can find some of it in Youtube. Foreigners loves to see misery in the other nations, so, it's easy to put a link and to "probe" the miserable version of the Brazilian reality.

    But if you prefer to know the truth, I invite you to see my Youtube channel and watch the videos. Most are home made and show the reality of Brazilians. See it and observe the difference between you see and that you read about my country:

      So sensitive. Why be offended, which is indicative of your having to spew all your BS copy and paste facts from Wikipedia? Yes, Brazil is filled with families that fall within the poverty range. So, rather than trying to defend....change it!

    this paragraph willl help you a lot "Brazil has the ninth largest economy in the world and the largest in Latin America. It is a country of extremes, with outstanding cultural, social and ecological diversity. Modern industry and commerce has flourished alongside with tremendous inequality, currently, one of the most serious challenges for the country today. Despite the rich natural resources, rapid economic development, and the overall size of Brazil’s economy, the nation has major problems with poverty, hunger, disease, and inadequate public services." this is interesting too "...the poor segment constitutes roughly one third of the population, and the extremely poor make out 13%" I hope this helps

    It's not a poor country, most people are in the middle class, unlike USA Brazil got a free and universal healthcare. Universities are also free, unlike USA. :)

    Brazil is a middle income country.

    It has a huge gap between the rich and poor.
