HoA - Another Instance of Brazil in the News

Chana Joff-Walt/NPR
NPR's Planet Money podcast recently had a great episode about the international cotton market (it's part of an ongoing mission to manufacture a t-shirt that you can read more about here) and the battle that Brazil has waged for the better part of a decade against the United States in the courts of the World Trade Organization.  It seems like we've discussed many news events related to the growing economic and political power of Brazil and this podcast certainly fits into that theme.  To listen to the podcast or read the accompanying article, click on this link.
