A Look Inside
Long Description
Written originally to provide the Brazilian non-specialist with a readable economic survey of his country, this book will be of particular interest to the English-speaking economist and historian for its authoritative assessment of the influence of various factors--political, social, geographical, fiscal, monetary--on Brazil's economic growth and capital formation. The author analyzes the importance of the export agricultural interests, deficit financing, inflation, and the fluctuations of the world coffee market.
