Why did we create The Brazilian Report?

If predictions made by the United Nations are accurate, we’re on track to become the world’s fifth-largest economy by 2050. Along with India and China, Brazil will be responsible for an astounding half of the global economy. And as we become an increasingly relevant global player, understanding our country will be more important than ever. As a team of award-winning, independent Brazilian journalists, we at The Brazilian Report are uniquely positioned to give you an insider’s view into the complexities and nuances underpinning our country’s political, economic, and social situations.

Our web-based journalism company doesn’t summarize the daily headlines. Instead, we’re focusing our efforts on publishing in-depth, thoughtful articles with the goal of helping you better understand Brazil. Our articles take an editorial stance on the topics we cover, though we also publish perspectives differing from our own. And in addition to our journalists, we’ve assembled a panel of experts, including academics, political scientists, journalists, and entrepreneurs, who will contribute their own distinctive insights into our country’s ever-changing political and cultural landscape.

The Brazilian Report gives you the critical tools needed to stay informed, letting you come to your own conclusions.

What we offer

We don’t believe in having a revenue model based on advertising. In the long run, a dependency on ads puts too much emphasis on numbers – the number of page visits, the number of likes, the number of comments – and can force journalists to sacrifice quality content in favor of click-bait, trying to maximize their hits. It’s not sustainable, and we refuse to do it.

The Brazilian Report is not in a race to publish the news faster. Instead, we want to do it better.

To make The Brazilian Report possible, we’re using a subscription-based model. A full website subscription will not only give you access to our original content, but also to our daily newsletter. Monday through Friday, our editorial team distills with brevity the most pressing issues facing Brazil, offering insightful commentary and analysis. We make sure you’re up to date by the time you finish your coffee.

We offer three plans tailored to your needs:

  1. access to just our website for USD 3.90/month;
  2. access to our website and weekly report for USD 9.90/month;
  3. and, our best deal, annual access to our website and weekly report and daily briefing newsletters for USD 19.90/month.

Since we’re offering our readers a free 7-day trial to explore our content, be sure to take a no-risk peek at everything The Brazilian Report has to offer. If you’re still not convinced, check out our 8 good reasons to subscribe.
