… you gotta have something, if you wanna spread the wealth:
Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, in an interview with Spanish newspaper El Pais, mused about various aspects before leaving office next December. […]
He described the situation when he was elected Brazilian president: “The country had no credit, had no working capital or financing or income distribution. What kind of capitalism was that? A capitalism without capital. I decided then that it was necessary to first build capitalism, then make socialism, we must have something to distribute before doing so.”
