Senator José Serra (PSDB-São Paulo) said recently that the current political crisis is deeper than that of 1964, which led to 20 years of military rule. Hopefully this is an overstatement.  Democratic rule is firmly entrenched and supported by all players, but popular distrust of politics and politicians is unprecedented.  The market is currently more concerned about the continuity of the economic team than it is about the fate of the President. Part of the reason is the quality of team; another is the importance of managing the macroeconomic challenges:   Brazil has been in recession for more than two years, with record losses in investments, jobs and income. The public debt continues to grow, due to the recession and growing public expenditures.  Reforms are critically needed, but now threatened by political instability.

With this background, we meet to discuss the macroeconomic and political situation, and short-term prospects. It is a challenge.  However, we will be fortunate to have with us an exceptional roster of panelists:
