  1. Que país é esse? says:

    Judging from this chart seems that Rio is much more unequal than São Paulo town, but anyway São Paulo is f****ing unequal with many favelas middle class laying in its suburbs.

    But according to Brazilian stats if you live in a shaky dangerous slam neighbourhood you can already be considered middle class and be proud of it.

    Anyway most Brazilians who live in those areas love the way they live, Brazilian culture acts according to this, e.g. Funk song are very present, the way most iliterate chat to one another, education is considered a joke, gossiping about others misfortune and meddling is a funny practice, talking about violence and criminals activities, washing one’s car in the street and not missing the opportunity of showing off to others, buying stolen objects, distorted vanity etc…

    Well the list is long and surely are exceptions, but it seems that Brazilian society accept how we’re and isn’t a little bothered in changing things.

    They just want us who live in those places proud of being middle class.

    Talk about inefficient market. How is it possible that Rio with lower per capita income and much smaller population be more expensive than Sao Paulo?

    Take a walk around Rio most expensive areas and you’ll see lots of little old houses and building with two or three floors. Plus, the majority of the new ones has up to six floors only. You’ll start to wonder why aren’t those greed real state builders replacing those small buildings by newer, bigger ones? Well, it is forbidden by city law. In many of those areas you can build only up to six floors and in other you cannot demolish old stuff.

    Better so. I do not want to live in a monster like sao paulo!! There are already enough ugly buildings in Rio. Do a restauration of the small charming houses in Ipanema, Leblon and it’s perfect. I wonder why they do not mention Urca in the statistics. Perhaps it’s too small but it is still my favorite in Rio. Charming and NOT like Sao Paulo – thanks god.

    In Brazil, on average, only 36% of the sewage generated in the cities receive some
    type treatment.
    People who lives in towns which there is no treated sewage are happy people.
    Bananaland has the most happy people among 175 countries in the world.

    In Brazil, on average, only 36% of the sewage generated in the cities receive some
    type treatment.
    IN our country, low class people who lives in towns which there is no treated sewage are happy people.
    Bananaland has the most happy people polled amongst 175 countries in the world.
    Bananalandians left wings politicians are only concerned to silence the media through government control of the media and control access to news on the Internet. For which they are issuing a law of media control, similar to that are in Venezuela and Argentina.
    The most remarkable thing happened during the visit to Brazil of the female Cuban blogger Yoani Sanchés that was terribly harassed by members of the dominant party of the left.
    Their fear were that the Y S could show the Truth about the dictatorship of Cuba.
    The Castro´s prision is the dream of 10 among 10 left wingers members of that party on the other hand, they act the same way all leftists in the world. Save their economies in USA.
