Supporters of Brazil's former President Jair Bolsonaro demonstrate against President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, in Brazil Play Video

About This Episode

Thousands of Bolsonaro supporters stormed Brazil’s key government buildings, in scenes reminiscent of the January 6 attack on the US Capitol. We’ll look at the similarities and differences between the two coup attempts. Then, we’ll analyze Netanyahu’s new government that is pushing a far-right agenda. Plus, after pivoting on “zero covid” policy, China reopened its borders for the first time since the Covid-19 pandemic began. What does this mean for the global economy? Ivo Daalder discusses with Ravi Agrawal and Giles Whittell on World Review.
