While on one side it pays a lot of local people in building the infrastructure ;it would also pay for a lot of public housing there. Also strange that some who advocate such public infrastructure spending here are against the same there to stimulate the economy. We spent 800B in massive infrastructure stimulus as it was called but then I see little of it so perhaps that is what they are talking about. It being diverted to special interest groups like it was here.

Shrug, I'd still visit Brazil in a flash if I had the money. Crime in certain countries doesn't really prevent me from wanting to visit that country. After all, our own country has plenty of crime, people conveniently overlook that fact. I wish I was there for the World Cup, that'd be a lot of fun.
