Brazil, the ninth-largest economy in the world and the largest country in Latin America, has a large population and abundant natural resources. Nonetheless, its progress has often disappointed its citizens and the world. In the past 50 years the Brazilian economy has been extremely volatile, alternating good cycles and severe crises, and challenges persist. 
Join M-RCBG Senior Fellow Eric Evans and Zelia Cardoso de Mello de Paola, the country's former Minister of Finance in exploring why there is such a gap between Brazil's potential and its reality.
