Brazil's economy of violence: the 50-year noose

Tavares Furtado, Henrique



In 2014 the world’s gaze is turning to Brazil. The country is, after all, holding one of the globe’s most anticipated mega events, the football World Cup. As it were, Brazilian authorities are expected to perform accordantly, which they have consistently failed to do, leading to a major delay in the infrastructure preparations. On the verge of the World Cup Brazil has ‘ceased up’, leaving it in doubt whether some stadiums will even be ready by the time the first match kicks off.
This is certainly unacceptable in a host country, but has generated even more unacceptable responses from anxious northern spectators.
