    Brazil here, the problem of Brazil began with a son of a bitch called jucelino kubichek, which discouraged the railroads in favor of the highways, which consequently discouraged the metallurgical industry,
    You made mistakes, mountains are never a problem, the making of tunnels goes around this problem, politicians are the problem.
    for you to have a notion in 1966 the military government turned off the ferrea line belo horizonte & bahia, yes 450 km of ferry lines were abandoned, the population of a city of Bahia called jequitinhonha is delayed until today in relation to the others because it is excluded from the centers populations.
    in the center of Belo Horizonte we got a congestion because of the lack of a possible bridge and a tunnel.
    the problem of my country is with the politicians, these mountains have gold, leave them there, when there is no iron, when there is no iron, there are copper, no copper has cassiterite, diamond, bauxite. etc.
    if you know how my country look at the politicians and you will know that everything wrong are them.
    we do not have earthquakes, we do not have volcanoes, we do not have hurricanes,
    in short, our lands are incredible, the people who run it are a disgrace.

    Brazilian here. There are lots of problems that does not help Brazil's development like other countries but one thing is the worst above it all, it's called corruption! Australia is in the south hemisphere too and it's an island! but considered a first world country so... the problem are not about geography at all 🌎

    Ok so brazil is a tough place, I had quite a rough childhood looking back when I used to live in the slums of RIo.
    the problem with Brazil it is its own people,really its a spider`s web of a problem.
    Corruption from the government diverting taxes and inflation causes the public to lose trust on government bodies, thus causing retaliation in the form of riots.
    People`s nativity impedes growth of the country, being quite a christian based country, they assume everything can and or was fixed to be a "work of god" which most likely it wasn't to be realistic.
    Sadly, most see drug trafficking as a way to make money to live and others work 8 to 10 hour days sustain their family and some just about manage to get though.
    I`m so glad and lucky to have the opportunity to fly over to the northem hemisphere. i`m in way better odds on carving myself a good future.

    Your disregard for environmental impacts of growth and development disgusts me. You don't even talk about it as a challenge to be dealt with along the way, instead just holding up growth as a goal, implicitly blessing it as virtuous. Growth is never ever sustainable - it's simply mathematically impossible to sustain growth indefinitely. So when talking about growth (which can be desirable, in certain contexts, just not sustainable), one ought to talk about its limits and costs. You talk about limiting factors, but limits, and not costs. It's irresponsible and disgusting.

    everything about this video is fucked up, from the made-up inaccurate information to the cheap solutions it proposes who considers economic growth above equality, sustainability, education, health care, other revolutionary ideas that we have learned from the native Americans and Africans to reshape the world to that people can actually be happy, and this has nothing to do with communism, but a responsibility for others, for the environment, that demands affection and commitment. The problem of Brazil is not, corruption, the problem of Brazil is greed and the idea of a society based on the accumulation of wealth, imposed by post-colonial imperialist western society and their meddling with Brazilian politics so that we can't be a sovereign country that influences powerful mind changes on how to build a better world.

    Soooo when the U.S was making all these roads and bridges they had to destroy some trees, forests, and more. And look Brasil is doing it now in the Amazon, that's why there's global warming. Why would we make all of these Bridges to just destroy the Amazon (It's also know as "the lung of Earth") im a Brazilian btw (Paraná Reserva 🇧🇷😁)

    i think that brasil's hindrance is productivity that simply didn't rise in 30 odd years, and i assume that it is due to brasil being one of the worst countryes to do business, as bureaucracy and tax are in a level that you would prefer doing business in a communist country like vietnam
    tax is theft and the state is a mafia, here in brasil this is more clear, not so much like venezuela though

    First world nations are considered to be those who were involved in the Cold War with the Americans, second world countries were involved with the Soviet Union and 3rd world countries were not involved with either side. It's erroneous to say something like building up the infrastructure will turn Brazil into a first world country. It would be more accurate to use a term like developed nation.

    Really interesting video. Don't mind the Brazilian haters. I've lived here for years and I can tell you that critical thinking is not their thing. Their whole life they've been repeatedly told _"Brasil abençoado por Deus"_ so facts based in logic upset them.
    I realise the focus was Brazil's _geography_ problem, but I felt there was a lack of focus on corruption. Like when you say it is cheaper and easier to send shit down a river to Argentina than a few miles to the Brazilian coast - you acknowledge that this is because of "poor road infrastructure" but neglect to mention the cause of *that* problem.
    The reason the roads are shit is because the budgets are always inflated so all the greasy pigs can take their cut, then money usually runs out before the work can be completely properly. Rio is presently full of such half-finished works.

    I have one point to make about the Cerrado - the Cerrado is an extremely environmentally diverse area with many endangered species, including some species of macaws, Jaguars, and giant anteaters. Therefore an issue with farming over it stems immediately from conservation of these wonderful animals. This was an issue you didn’t touch on.

    hehe, I still prefer Brazil thou, no hurricanes, tornadoes, cold and snow, better weather than in your country.
    The geography in Brazil is nice, the woman are the way hotter than American woman too., oh almost forgot, not much ugly obese people like in your country..... you guys must tackle obesity, also apparently only 10% of American people owns a passport, that's pretty lame.
    Here in Europe you ask anyone, what u think about Americans, 99 per cent of people will say... hummm, they are blond dumb bimbos hehehe.
    Amricans are famous for being dumb, like if I ask what's the capital of Finland they say Oslo, or if I ask, where is Ghandi from, Americans would say Mexico..... so ur video is just as an expected, dumb, why? duhhh u American, so its obvious and everyone knows! now go eat hamburger and bacon hahahahahahahahahahahna

    Hey. It's awesome that you want to talk about Brazil and stuff, but please check your sources. This video has A LOT of incorrect information
    People already mentioned most of them. The thing is that all of the "solutions" fall flat and make no sense. So fod Brazil to become a first world country we need more farm land? What?
    And Brazil doesn't use Argentina as its main port, it's Santos. And Brazil has never needed to import food like you said.
    The worst part is about Amazonas. First of all, it's not empty. Manaus is a great city and it doesn't have many big cities because differently from the "rich countries" we have indigenous tribes living their own lives that don't want to build cities.
    Also, no cities are close to the Amazon river, that's ilegal. Cities have floods in all of the country because of pollution and poor infrastructure.
    It's just hurtful when people think everyone should do what the US did, like chop down all the forest in name of progress.
    I don't know your ethnicity but you can't opinion and give "advice" on issues and situations you don't understand so that we can "be great like the north hemisphere"
    Thank you but NO

    • Julia S

      Ok I just finished watching the video and let me tell you something:
      Brasilia was not build to bring people to the country side. President JK build Brasilia as a way to distract people from the corruption and as a way to get people away from politics. In Rio anyone could walk and participate, in Brasilia the only people that can are the ones that live there, politicians themselves.
      Oh and the people that physically build Brasilia (poor northeasterns) suffer prejudice and aggressions when they go there or any other rich city
      And soy beans increasing in Brazil is NOT A GOOD THING! These products are bad for health (transgenic) and they are all owned by milionaire people. They steal land from the poor and burn indigenous lands.
      I was trying to be polite but honestly fuck you

    They just discovered that you could grow stuff on poor land adding "phosphorus and lime..."? Excuse me, but it's been known for centuries that you could "sweeten" acidic soil by putting lime, or calcium hydroxide, a base, on it. And yes, you can enrich nutrient-poor soil with artificial fertilizer - but it's expensive and not sustainable.

    This is a great video ,I especially liked the comparison of the North and South and the effects of relief on a country's productivity. Brazil is in a desperate state financially because many of the Politicians (Workers Party) are corrupt and much of the financial gains have been squandered (see Venezuela ).
    Luckily they have elected a "hard man" as the next president , but it we will have to wait and see if he turns the country "around" or succumbs to militarism to achieve this.

    Interesting fact about the Amazon - It has all the plant life it has thanks to the Western coast of Africa. The phosphorus you mentioned was needed is transported from West Africa by ocean currents, ends up in the Amazon rivers, and is then deposited everywhere in the Amazon.

      Ou você é um completo analfabeto funcional e não prestou atenção no vídeo. Ele disse que antes dos anos 2000 o Brasil não produzia alimentos suficientes pois as terras para plantação eram poucas, mas depois dos anos 2000, os cientistas descobriram que podiam plantar no centro-oeste, no cerrado, e isso aumentou muito as terras para plantação, fazendo do Brasil um dos maiores produtores de alimentos do mundo.
