Weekly Headlines

January 2, 2010

Brazilian magazines begin the year wearing rosy glasses. Veja discusses the promising use of laser in modern medicine, while Isto É and Época see a bright future for the country (“An extraordinary 2010”, says Época, and “Yes, we are a powerful”, guarantees Isto é, referring to Brazil). Last time I saw this euphoria was in the early seventies, when the military dictatorship built, artificially, the idea that the country would soon lead the planet. This time, at least, the enthusiasm has some base in reality .
