Brazil must beat corruption, not Dutch disease

I've already posted twice on Brazil's oil today, so I promise this is the last one. I've been critical of the media coverage overall, but I liked this Reuters analysis which concluded that of the elements of the resource curse, Brazil should worry more about corruption and less about Dutch disease.

Also, Forbes has a good little "factbox" on other countries' experience with the oil curse. Basically Norway made out fine, and no one has been able to replicate their success since.
