What is happening in Brazil in 1960CE

A revolution brought Getulio Vargas to power as dictator (1930). His dictatorship was comparatively tolerant of the people’s freedoms, and he presided over a period of economic recovery, despite the sharp economic downturn of the early 1930s. Brazil developed a larger home-grown industrial base than ever before.

After democracy was restored in 1946, Vargas was elected President by free vote (1951). His chaotic handling of government, however, led to his second abdication in 1954. The President is now (1960) Juscelino Kubitschek, whose regime has pursued modernizing economic policies.

This year sees the dramatic opening of Brazil’s brand new capital, Brazilia.
