  •  Brasil is a Massive Country! (0+ / 0-)

    you can't even compare the two. Venezuela does not have the strength of demographics, the sheer resources, the sheer land, the agricultural and mining and forestry possibilities that Brasil enjoys. You're comparing Alaska to California.

    That is all. Individually, I wish you the best, but collectively, my dearest hope is to outlive you - groovetronica

    •  Somehow (0+ / 0-)

      South Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, Poland, the Czech Republic,and Chile have made do with little or less than Brazil or Venezuela.  And the UAE has done a better job of diversifying out of their oil economy by far, to the extent oil and natural gas now only make up 6% of their GDP.  And, by the same token then, comparing Rio to Caracas is not really fair, right?
