Brazil not as dangerous as one might think

I have lived in Brazil and speak Portuguese fluently. It is probably the safest Latin American country there is.

The corruption is mostly a thing of the past. It has a lower inflation and unemployment rate than the US. Its government is running surpluses and paying down debt. Its economy is growing by leaps and bounds with one of the largest oil fields in the world recently discovered there.

As the economy has grown, crime has plummeted. The murder and violent crime rate are less than half what they were 10 years ago. While crime is still high, much of it is avoidable if you take basic precautions like staying away from the Favelas.

The government respects basic civil rights much more than the US government does. It’s not a police state like the US is becoming.
