I started this series by talking about the history of Brazil and the composition of its population. Immigrants from around the world constitute what Brazil is today – a country where all races are present. This immigration helped create the Brazil we know today.
There were once large pools of idle land in Brazil with little manpower available for agriculture. After a global economic crisis in the 1930s, however, there was too much manpower available. Rural workers with reduced land dimensions could no longer feed large families.
