Brazil’s Election

The Economist’s coverage of the Rouseff-Serra election indicates some of the electoral fault lines within this major BRIC country.

“That voters who turned away from Ms Rousseff chose Ms Silva is bad news for Mr Serra’s centrist Party of Brazilian Social Democracy (PSDB). He failed to attract either young voters with no memories of the hyperinflation his party conquered in the 1990s, or the poor northern ones in whose hearts Lula reigns.”

This is part of my survey of the 30 best articles from The Economist over the past two years to gain insight into whether Brazilian attitudes towards America have declined, and global attitudes towards Brazil — comments welcome!
