A twentieth century that perhaps belong to the New World--North and South America. Two countries destined to share an increasingly important part of the remainder of the century: Canada and Brazil. A shared handicap: they have not been sufficiently known to, or understood by, persons in other lands. Some amusing examples of this phenomenon. A description and history of Brazil; population and politics; economy; agriculture; mineral resources. The current industrial and commercial expansion in Brazil and the resulting rise in the standard of living. Brazil's monetary policy. Brazil as a potential large and profitable market for an exporting country such as Canada. Trade balances. The increasing importance to Canada of Latin-American trade, particularly with Brazil. Brazil's development.
