Reuters: Poverty still plagues Brazil
Jul 9 - Poverty still haunts Brazil, even as a booming economy has lifted millions of Brazilian into a new middle class.
The income of Brazil's poorest 10 percent grew by about 9 percent per year between 2001 and 2006 - meaning millions of poor are moving out of danger of hunger.
Deborah Lutterbeck reports.
Note: One of the thing I found interesting about this report is that you could easily have titled it "Remarkable Improvement in Brazilian Poverty" yet Reuters chose the dire title "Poverty still plagues Brazil."
