October 7 was election day in Brazil, amidst rising confusion and misunderstanding.
It is important to focus on the history of the PT government since the outset.
Today Brazil is living the most serious crisis since the end of the military regime in the 1980s.
Whatever the outcome of the Second Round of the presidential elections scheduled for October 28, Neoliberalism and the Washington Consensus will in all likelihood prevail.
In this regard, it is important to reflect on how Brazil’s PT government was coopted from the very outset in 2003.
