Huh?

So I’m reading the BBC’s report on the Copa Libertadores Final. The writer didn’t think much of the match. Then I see this paragraph…

In a country whose income distribution is among the most unfair in the world, the import of US-style consumer culture has further emphasized the brutal division between a few haves and the vast majority of have-nots.

…So, am I to understand that the writer blames US economics for him having to watch a match he didn’t find entertaining? C’mon, the top players are heading to Europe (England among the countries) not North America. I’m sure you enjoy being able to see them in person on Saturday afternoons. So, why the jibe at the US?
