President Dilma Rousseff's Second Term: What's in Store for Brazil?
As President Dilma Rousseff begins the third month of her second term in office, Brazil is facing more challenges than ever. Petrobras, the state-owned oil company, is mired in a far-reaching corruption scandal. After 7.5 percent GDP growth in 2010, 2014 saw no growth at all - and the economy is expected to contract by 1 percent this year. Inflation is nearly 8 percent, the real is weak, and there's no clear end in sight. Join us for a discussion of Brazil's challenges - and the country's potential to overcome them.
