The author gives a survey of problems such as social inequality, inflation and income concentration since Brazil's independence in 1822. He then proceeds to discuss the economic challenges faced by the country since the nineteenth century, culminating in a vicious circle of debt. The overall result is poverty. A virtuous circle of debt repayment is needed. The path suggested would be like a step sideways towards poverty eradication and social inclusion. The main objective should be free education for all children from 6 to 17 years of age, plus full implementation of programmes such as bolsa-escola and bolsa-familia (school attendance bursaries).
