Once saw as an economy similar to China, since offered high growth rates, Brazil is now among the other countries that has a more down to earth GDP expected growth. That fact might disappoint some investors, but in the other hand, there is still fertile soil for those who know how and where to invest in the strongest and most powerful economy in South America.
According to Fernando Henrique Cardoso, Brazil’s former president, “It’s not as bad as some say now, and it was never as good as some said then”. There is a lot of money to be made with investments in infrastructure, technology and education. Specially infrastructure, since Brazil will host the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics and there are still chances to invest into it.
The key to invest in Brazil lies in the bottlenecks.
Indeed, the greatest opportunities seem to lie in precisely the areas that have been holding Brazil’s economy back the most.
Take education: Many economists have blamed falling productivity for Brazil’s recent downshift in growth, and said better schools are a huge part of any medium-term solution.
Infrastructure, too, has been attractive because Brazil’s government knows the economy can’t grow faster without massive private-sector investment in ports, airports and railroads that are overburdened after last decade’s boom.
