Impact of International Organizations in Brazil Modernization
Modernization is the change or transition from the ‘traditional society’ (also called pre-modern society) to the ‘modern society. The transition is a gradual process and does not have a specific timeline as it depends on various factors among them the attitude of the society. A conservative society takes longer to modernize compared to a liberal one.  Modernization theory came from Max Weber, a German Sociologist which Talcott Parsons later use it as a foundation in developing the modernization paradigm (Kennedy, 2010). The modernization theory focuses on the internal factors that influence its adoption to the modern economic models used in the developed countries.
The international politics played a role in the modernization of the Brazilian economy on various fronts. Firstly, the geographical location of the country put it the center of ideological wars between the socialists and capitalist.  In the post-World War II, most countries had to align themselves with either the socialism or capitalism. Brazil adopted socialism model as opposed to capitalism which is the dominant model in the United States and European countries.
However, the corrupt nature of the country’s leaders to the collapse of nearly all of her economy as they exploited the natural resources to their benefit rather than the citizens. Socialism in Brazil, just like most of the Latin-Americans leaning to the left, has always been a conduit to rob country by few elite rather than enrich the lives of the citizens.
The 2008-2009 economic regression gave a new insight into capitalism, the preferred economic model in Europe and America. It exposed the widening economic gap between the poor and the rich (Grusky & Christopher Wimer, 2011). As a result, it exposed capitalism as “perfect model” for promoting the modernization of a country’s economy.
