Why You Should Buy What Brazil Needs

Stefan Zweig pegged it right after all. In the late 1930s, the Austrian playwright and writer sought relief from war-torn Europe and settled in Brazil. He loved it. In 1941, he moved there and wrote his book Brazil: Land of the Future . Brazil, he thought, “was destined to become one of the most important factors in the development of our world.” Brazil impressed Zweig with its enormous size — it is bigger than the continental U.S. — and impressive landscapes. He also saw what many saw before him. “Here lies immeasurable wealth of soil that has never been plowed or cultivated,” he wrote, “and beneath it are ores, minerals and natural resources that have not in the least been used up nor even extensively explored.” And so it remains today. As I say, Zweig was not the first to find charm in these sunny lands. A long line of travelers and adventurers have said much the same thing. But it took a long time to get going, so much so that it became a joke: “Brazil, the land of the future and always will be.” Still, natural resource booms did help settle and build Brazil, as Zweig observes. Booms in lumber, sugar and cotton settled the north and created Bahia, Recife, Olinda, Pernambuco and Ceará. Gold settled Minas Gerais. Coffee raised São Paulo. Rubber gave life to Manaus and Belem. And on and on… Today, though, Brazil seems to be putting it all together and the old joke has gone stale. Brazil is the leading exporter of a long list …

In a patronizing Aug. 1, 2008, e-mail, one Bureau of Land Management employee warned DHS that work on Secure Border Initiative security towers outside protected areas must be halted if there are any signs of an endangered Sonoran pronghorn within two miles. “The pronghorn cannot be 'encouraged' to vacate the area. If no pronghorn are using the area at the time, then drilling can proceed.” Pronghorns get more federal protection than American citizens, who are also endangered by the tens of thousands of foreign nationals who sneak across the border.
