The Big Revolts

Once synonymous with financial meltdowns, Brazil now is trying to help the world solve a crisis that began in the U.S. Brazilian officials privately joke that U.S. banks that once lectured Brazil on fiscal prudence now risk collapse. Mr. da Silva warned that the downturn threatened to hurt an emerging middle class in developing nations, a recipe for social unrest. "The big revolts don't come from the hungry," Mr. da Silva said. "They come from the middle class, which has learned to live well, and doesn't want to lose it."
