Subtitles / Closed Captions - English

NARRATOR 1: This is a simple image. But as the saying goes, it can speak a thousand words. The man who took this photo sees this picture as one that can sum up and represent an entire country. And I think it'll be best to let him tell you why. [MUSIC PLAYING]

NARRATOR 1: Standard and Poor's gives countries independent credit ratings based on those countries' finances. The better a rating a country is given, the more positively it's looked upon by investors in the public.

NARRATOR 1: Reports that came out after Brazil's World Cup found that thousands of poverty stricken citizens lost their homes as a result of new stadiums and infrastructure. Billions of dollars that could've

been spent on sanitation or education went to the soccer tournament instead. And still, many poor citizens embraced it. And this is the dichotomy that attracted Jairo to take this photograph.
