Since the 1960s Brazil has been on the verge of becoming a nation of considerable power. The country has abundant natural resources and a building industrial capacity. Its natural resource reserves are some of the largest in the world. The country is rich in agriculture potential and is predicted to rival the export capability of the United States within the next few years. Brazil has built a modern military and a modern military-industrial capacity which has allowed it to jump to the worlds number five ranking in military exports. Recently the country elected a president which puts it in the category of a democratic nation. This paper discusses the probability of Brazil becoming a world power as the result of three factors economic growth, a revived democracy, and a modern military. Although a huge national debt now exists, proper attention has been given to the remedy, and Brazil is once again on its path to destiny.
