Vinegar Revolt

This is what people are calling the protests that are causing general upheaval in Brazil.

The question is, why would a country at near full employment, whose average per capita income has nearly double over the last ten years, take to the streets in protest?

From bus fares, to egregious public spending on the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics, to poor public services and corruption, the reasons for protests seem at once limitless and incoherent. What exactly is driving these protests? I’ll try to answer this question in the days ahead.
