Found this article on Brazil's readiness for the world cup. Interesting ready, are they ready from a political and physical standpoint? The World Cup is sure to inject money into their economy, but how long will it last, and locals have said the money spent was desperately needed elsewhere in public services.

Developing countries shouldn't be selected to host the World Cup. Just like India with their space projects - you have mega slums where people are living in shameful conditions, through no fault of their own, while their national governments decide to spend money on less worthwhile issues.

FIFA also insist on spanking new stadiums though and it wouldn't surprise me to see developing countries that are not oil rich end up having their fingers burned because the gamble on having this expensive sporting event has ended up making them lose money rather than gain. It's also an issue that developing countries should take note of, as I believe we suffered a hit on the Olympics. If a developed country can overspend and suffer consequences from that, then developing countries doing the same will suffer far more as a result.
