In China it's also incredibly stark. I think the big differences are that the government is more or less in control in those areas of great poverty. Also, the areas of China that have been pulled into the middle class or have become wealthy is far larger in absolute numbers (expected given that China has over 1 BILLION more people than Brazil does).

Comos os americanos veem o Brasil - (Programa de TV dos Estados Unidos) - YouTube

Many, many people around the world, have a very distorted view of Brazil.
They think Brazil is just soccer, carnival, beaches and slums.
The truth is very different.
Watch this report made by TV Show "60 Minutes" and you will know a bit more about Brazil.

Brazil will not become the next US, it will just become a better (hopefully) Brazil...and hopefully be a more progressive and globally cooperative nation than the US. The spirit of Brazil is much different than that of the US...I would assume that through the prosperity and growing economy it will look more into internal development and strengthening international relations, and not be a modern imperialist like the US masking itself as the worlds most valuable.

The US is certainly becoming more like Brazil, with increasing inequality and the rich isolating themselves.
