Once everywhere on crowded New York sidewalks, at swanky Miami malls, and on fun Orlando Disney rides, the happy people from the land of soccer are nowhere to be seen. “Where have all the Brazilians gone?” ask puzzled American tourist officials. Well, well, well, well, the not-so-long-ago booming Brazilian economy is in deep recession. Many have lost their jobs, and those whose paychecks are still coming in can barely make ends meet — let alone travel — the direct result of soaring inflation eating away at wages.

  1. It is a sad situation and one, I fear, that we may be heading for as far as the middle class is concerned. More and more frequently, I see packages of cereal and other items reduce in size while the price grows. I have no idea how families with children manage. When I voiced this concern to the lady in Von’s who was checking out my purchases, she said, “I’m one of those families. I work here in order to pay for our groceries.” I’m afraid that a prediction my uncle heard from his tax man in 1988 is coming true. After a visit to Washington,D.C. to brush up on the latest tax changes, he said there was a plan afoot to eliminate the middle class and have just the poor and the rich. The Brazilians might not be the only ones to find themselves in this plight.
