    As we did in 2012, CLBR takes an Olympic detour to focus on the state of its host country – Brazil with Susanna Hecht of UCLA’s Luskin School of Public Affairs and its Latin American Institute.   Among other things, Brazil is: the 5th largest and 5th most populous country on earth;the 7th largest economy;home to the 4th largest population of internet users;the 3rd largest producer of renewable energy;home to 21 of the 50 most violent cities in the world;suffering from a severe recession; andis in a state of political crisis.
