Brazil has overtaken the UK, becoming the sixth largest economy in the world and, with the prospect of moving further up in the next few years. Since 2003 the policies carried out by the PT governments have taken 25 million Brazilians out of poverty. The central issues are: how long-term is this trend? Can Brazil maintain this virtuous circle? And can the eradication of poverty be sustained over the long term so as bring about development not just economic growth?
