The new South Africa
A country of contrasts, colored in black and white, where things
are more sharply perceived: that is South Africa, especially if
we compare it with Brazil. And there is a lot of common ground
to be compared. Signs of great wealth contrast with absolute
poverty. High unemployment (twice the Brazilian rate), urban
crime (similar to ours) and serious health problems (especially
with AIDS, which is not the case in Brazil). The difference, by
and large, is that South Africa started out ten years ago in a
worse condition than ours, and massive efforts are well under
way to improve the living conditions of the poor, while here in
Brazil those efforts appear always to be just starting… South
Africa has big political problems too, corruption probably just
as much, but chances are that, if both countries continue on
the same path, South Africa might be in a better position than
Brazil in the next decade.
