Discussion: Can Brazil’s government survive its current political & economic storm?

As Brazil’s political and economic crisis continues, President Dilma Rousseff now faces the threat of impeachment amid Brazil’s worst recession in decades. The threat comes as she faces growing criticism for appointing her predecessor Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva as her cabinet’s chief of staff, only to see the move immediately blocked by a federal judge. As the country gears up to host the Olympic Games this summer, we take a look at whether Rousseff’s government can survive. What are the country’s best options to stop its economic woes, and what can be done to secure stability? Join us for a panel discussion with Charles Tang, President of the Brazil China Chamber of Commerce & Industry; and in San Francisco, Paulo Sotero, Director of the Brazil Institute of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.
