Japan and Brazil have together become team players in the world. Japan has a tremendous impact on Brazil at three different levels: through the Brazilians of Japanese ancestry, through the effects of the present recession in Japan, and through third party players. Japan has also culturally and economically affected Brazil. They helped Brazil increase production and accomplish various things that were thought of as impossible. Although the Japanese are culturally different than the Brazilians, they influenced Brazil through economic events like market economies. You would never really think that two countries like Japan and Brazil would come together by economic standpoints. Global interdependence works all kinds of different ways and will potentially shape the lives of people every day.
