The turn of the year from 2010 to 2011 marked the end of the 8-year term of President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva of the Workers Party (PT). His time in office was exceptional in many ways within the democratic history of Brazil and his departure from office also occurs in the midst of unique conditions: never before had a Brazilian president completed his term with higher approval ratings at around 80 %; nor had Brazil ever had a president from the working class; and never before (except for the milagre econômico—the economic miracle—in the late 1960s to early 1970s) had Brazil been regarded internationally as an upper middle income country. Ultimately one could say that never before had Brazil been so close to becoming the “land of the future” Stefan Zweig wrote about in the 1940s, as well as achieving the image the country has of itself as middle power within a multipolar global system.
