Brazil has been able to use consistent economic growth to lift around 40 million people out of poverty. Brazil have seen their incomes rise, with the poorest benefiting significantly more than the richest. Family enterprises account for 84% of Brazilian farms and 24% of farm land. Unlike the subsistence agriculture practiced by the majority of African smallholders, family farms in Brazil are well integrated into lucrative export markets. The recognition of the country's "social debt" towards the poorest has also ensured an ongoing political commitment to tackle poverty and inequality. From 2000 to 2012, Brazil was one of the fastest-growing major economies in the world. In 2012 Forbes ranked Brazil as having the 5th largest number of billionaires in the world, a number much larger than what is found in other Latin American countries, and even ahead of United Kingdom and Japan.
