    Brasileiros! Acalmen-se pelo amor de Deus! O video nao esta dizendo que O GRANDE problema do Brasil é a geografia. o video esta falando sobre o problema que a geografia Brasileira apresenta para o crescimento do pais. É muito interessante. Abordou varios assuntos de uma forma em que eu nunca havia parado pra pensar. Claro que a corrupçao continua sendo o nosso maior problema. Mas isso nao tira o merito do video que estava abordando apenas o efeito da geografia no crescimento economico do Brasil.

    this video has lots of mistakes, one not pointed out at all which is surprising is that he said measured by gdp per capita, the top 20 richest countries in the world are in the northern hemisphere. UM EXCUSE ME? united arab emirates, #8 gdp per capita (2017): $40,000. #7, kuwait gdp per capita (2017) $29,000. the gdp per capita list is SO EXTREMELY WRONG, i don’t know how you can fuck that up unless it’s intentionally, not to mention australia is in the southern hemisphere and boasts a gdp per capita richer than so called number 7 and 8 richest countries at $54,000 🙄

    I've always found Brazil to be a strange place. It's one of the biggest countries yet you dont hear all that much from it and it never seems to be out getting involved with the world. Of all the countries I'd say I know very little about Brazil or it's people apart from how good looking Brazilian men on Instagram seem to be lol

    Two thousand years ago, we conquered and expanded our frontier like the Romans;
    A thousand years ago, we were as rich as the Arabs;

    Sour grapes! Brazil has the largest amount of farming lands in the world. This video is totally biased. The UN has even said that Brazil will be mankind's barn. We can do without potatos to eat well, unlike many European countries which can't provide their populations with beef for everyday consumption because they do not have enough fresh water sources for cattle raising. Our portions are big because we don't call a stuffed potato a meal nor we poison ourselves with greasy, vitamin-free hamburgers made for cave men. We have social problems but people don't freeze to death here. Nature was very generous with us. The wind in summer is warm, not chilly. And sea water temperature is 24 degrees. Grin and Bear it!

    Brazil`s problem is its Geography!!! Where on earth did you come up with this? Your whole video is proof a total ignorance and illusion of knowledge. Brazil is the most biodiverse ecosystem on the planet and Its geography is breathtaking!
    Brazil`s real problem is way more subtle and invisible to the "naked" eye - For decades, millions of illiterate, alienated and mediocre "citizens", easily misled and governed by a corrupt minority gave birth to a unique and frivolous sense of collective consciousness. These shared beliefs, ideas, and moral attitudes, which should operate as a unifying force within a society, were twisted and deliberately manipulated in such a way that it is almost impossible to describe.

    Brazil's biggest problem is the ideology that has governed the country for decades (socialism), creating a giant and inefficient government that privileges a minority (politicians and their friends, obviously) and hinders the lives of the entrepreneurs (the only ones that can end the unemployment created by socialism by the way). Only those who live in socialist countries know what this crap of ideology does

    With all these "problems", how do you explain that Brazil is the 8th economy of the world? Your movie is trying to show that the country is doomed. It's the most outrageous shit I've ever seen in my life. Brazil doesn't have hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis. Brazil has great climate, and has the biggest agriculture potential of the world, biggest potable water reserves, no external debt... What are the intensions of this video? It lacks information about Brazil history, cultural and political aspects that explains Brazil's development stage. Your video seems to mix time and concepts by purpose. It's the worst video I've ever seen. It should be removed from the web. It is a video that misinforms. The maim problem of Brazil is the internal deficit caused by 30 years of corruption and lack of reforms from left governments. All this situation is about to change right now and your dumb question will be answered.

    There should be more to life than money and money doesn't buy happiness. The idea that if rich people get rich it will filter down to the poor at the bottom of the pile is absolute crap and governments (usually controlled by bribery and corruption) continue to lie to their populations.

    Brazil needs to redesign the wheel. Wheels that can traverse dirt and water are known. The US patent system already provides this technology for free. Look up the invention you need; see if it is in public domain E.g. over 20 years old or abandoned; and if so it is free to use.
