With the first round of Brazil’s presidential and general elections upon us, the country has performed better than many expected. Growth forecasts are over a point higher in the year, while the currency and fiscal revenues had a solid first half. The privatization of Eletrobras and other micro reforms are welcomed initiatives, but higher cyclical revenues have triggered pent-up (largely structural) spending.
This is worrisome when global recession fears mount. Our “2022 Brazil: Economic and Political Outlook” assessed Brazil’s short-term and long-term political and economic prospects. Speakers discussed the current condition of the Brazilian economy, the reform process, and the challenges facing the new administration that takes office in January 2023.
Please watch the highlights of this insightful discussion with government officials, private sector economists, and political scientists.
