Based on debt and corrupt political/justice system, just like Greece & Italy then lol,
To say the Brazil system is corrupt is an underuse of the term 'corrupt'. I am not familiar with the Greek or Italian systems, but would be very
if they were anything like Brazil. The Brazilian judicial system makes the Indian system look like the Supreme Court.
There really is no hope unless you are connected to the right people.
And forget business, unless you know the right people. Many-a-time I've being driving along the coast and am stopped by the 'police' (usually a Friday), and when they see I am a tourist they leave me. Friends tell me they want beer money for the weekend....it is just the way it goes for the locals.
I was driving merrily along once in SP (near that stinky river...can't remember its name) and a police car got in between me and the car in front.....the car stopped, and these two police guys got out, literally in front of me, with guns drawn. I don't know alot about guns, but these guns were fucking HUGE. They had them firmly on the two passengers of the car in front, I was sure they would kill them there and then. The two guys got out slowly, papers were checked and police went away. Not nice.
BTW if you're driving in the evening and there's a red light - DON'T STOP, just keep going.....alot of carjackings/deaths happen because of this.
The only reason UK politicians don't do what the Indian/Brazillian politicians do is because of our Laws.
When they bin the Laws, we're fucked.
