The Democratization of Consumption

Life and its aspirations on the outskirts of Greater São Paulo

Author: Nilson Vieira Oliveira e Patricia Mota Guedes May 2006

Double-sided refrigerators, mobile phones, cars, flights and vacation packages, bank accounts, credit cards and brand-name products are no longer impossible dreams for poor families.
