When Neoliberalism and Deep Democracy run in Parallel - Brazil's Development Strategy
About the lecture:Throughout history Brazil has witnessed a broad range of politico-economical development configurations. Since the return to democracy Brazil has developed itself to one of the most important emerging economies in the world, also expanding its political influence. Remarkable about the case of Brazil is the interesting mix of neoliberal economic policies and unprecedented left-wing visions and experiments, putting Brazil on a stable path of growth while ensuring a larger part of the population than before reaps the benefits.
