cyber crimeOnce a market that was considered a secure place for investment, Brazil today faces challenges in recovering after the worldwide financial crisis. As a response to the sluggish nature of the country’s economy, Brazilian leaders have taken aggressive steps to stimulate investment growth. Some of the policy moves, such as currency devaluation and the lowering of exchange and interest rates, have been looked at with question.  Other moves, like the capping of Mexican manufactured automobiles, have some U.S. officials worried about Brazil’s growing protectionism and state-guided capitalism. What role, if any, does the United States have in the development of Latin America’s largest country?


Join the Center for National Policy on Capitol Hill to discuss these questions. Lunch will be served.
