    I just got done with the video billions of entrepreneurs. I will admit I hadn’t thought of what controlling there economy like that does to developing countries. Man I really hope that gets stopped soon because those practices are downright predatory.

    Tags: Brazil   

    From the reading on the New Second world I was surprised to hear about Brazil being considered among them. Most of what I hear about Brazil are about their poverty issues, and how it’s ridiculously hard to get your hands on video game consoles. Do any of you guys have insights I’ve missed?

      I think that’s the nature of a second world country. They have enough wealth that poverty stands out and is worth mentioning. In the poorest countries poverty is just assumed in news reporting. Video games are a great example. They have enough leisure time, electrical infrastructure, and spending money for a console they are doing well but their difficulty getting them shows they aren’t quite there yet. Maybe instead of first world second world etc… we should just use what generation of Playstation theyre on. Cant use xbox as their numbering system is insane

    Something I found interesting in the Madison reading was the level of development in Japan. To be honest though I know that it’s production had spurred I had trouble digesting the level of that that happened since the 80’s. the growth seems unsustainable to me, which leaves me wondering about their future.

    Hi there Names Eli Zumberg Like my title said. I’m an economics student whom is currently on his 4th semester And I’m taking this class in order to keep economics fresh in my mind. My particular interests seem to lead me towards concepts like the tragedy of the commons and I am a vehement supporter of marketable permits.
