Brazilian Economic Insights

The publication “Brazilian Economic Insights” was conceived in 2006 with the aim of presenting the general public with the views of the Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES) concerning issues related to economic development in Brazil. For this reason, the texts presented here have taken on a very specific format: they are short and written in a style that is accessible to a broader audience. The publication covers topics, such as the financial market, the production structure and foreign trade, investment, fiscal policy, the labor market and social inclusion.
