A few days ago I posted about Brazil's economic rise. I wrote that the awarding of the 2016 Summer Olympics to Rio de Janeiro (as well as the fact that Brazil is hosting the 2014 FIFA World Cup) was further good news for an already strong, developing economy.
SeekingAlpha has two articles that support my arguments.
