            Brazil's economic and social disparities problems are not completelly related to geography, but instead to how the government dealt with colonization and the ways to distribuit land.
            USA landmass is comparable to Brasil when it comes to dimensions (even bigger), but they had the center colonized and developed pretty soon, which also led to solving major agricultural, social and transportation problems earlier! So you might be thinking right now... "Why the US has so many huge cities far from the coast and figured out how to deconcentrate the population from their coast and Brazil didn't?
            Well.. it's all about how the state regulates the land. Whilist the USA had the "SteadAct", in other words, if the land had no owner, you could take appropriation of the land... in Brazil it would belong to the government. So.. if you wanted to take the ownership of that land in Brazil, it would take a greater effort, a lot of burocracy... and bribes to the agentes of the crown (It was a Empire back then).
            So... the population had no incentive to explore the insider parts of the country and the government could not afford to plan and do it by themselve, while in the US people had to go further and further to get their own piece of land. Some corporations and enterpreneurs also took an important roles when it came to transportation and development of those areas. They would often buy the recently appropriet land, build a railroad and then sell it back, but it is now more expensive.. cause it has a railroad now... transportation is easier.
            By letting people follow their own way and respecting the individual rights to property, the US had more railroads by the year of 1860 than Brazil has TODAY! It's insane.

            If you want to check out some more about it.. you should read "Railroad and Regulations".. the author is Gabriel Kolko.

                Like most of SA and the world, it’s easier to just flood into America and turn the US into a third world country.

                          Not pretty accurate. Look carefully in the soya plantation sites. It is basically bigger than France you skip it ... About Amazon soil being harsh, yes it is, that is why they increase the retained soil minerals by burning the forest over it. To be good for agriculture and cows.

                                " Brazil can't feed it's population (4:05)"
                                What really is the truth is that the government dosen't really cares for who dosen't pays taxes for them, meaning if no free money, no food for them. That's how Brazil works. Also, here in Colombo, it's basically the nest of the bandits of Brazil, where they get their glocks and blow up nearly everthing, and knowing that this is just their f***ing training, this just makes me want to die. Think about this: bikers gather up in a bus and grab a part of it to go with the bus. When the bus stops, all the bikers go directly at the driver of the bus and fight against the driver. Yeah, that happened here like 2 days ago. We can't do nothing otherwise we will be sent to prison just because police is blind and can't see that the bad ones are the bikers.

                                  Brazil would probably already either almost be or be a global superpower if it's government didn't go socialist at the turn of the 21st century. Goes to show that socialism never works long term

                                    I believe Brazil by its size,population and many water routes and proper allies, has the potential to become the 4th Super Power, then we would not have to take on China and Russia alone, The USA is England's successor in protecting the world, and I see Brazil as Spain's, especially since we are both much bigger then our predecessors and with modern tech and transport our only threats are the corruptions that socialism brings which they are fighting with much success i hear just like Us.

                                              How is it the biggest land by population in the southern hemisphere? Since Indonesia as well has a the majority of its country south of the equator.

                                                  To be honest most of the Southern Hemisphere is improving rapidly.
                                                  Most of those countries mentioned in the GDP per capita, well the middle east ones anyway are one trick ponies and will return to wastelands when the world transitions from fossil fuels.
                                                  Australia, New Zealand and Chile are already wealthy countries and Argentina is not far behind.
                                                  Yes rivers are beneficial but so are railways and roads. Just give Brazil time to build up its infrastructure and they will be a force to be reckoned with. The only thing holding them back is stable government.
