Prof. Ed Amann and Prof. Armando Barrientos gave a presentation on November 25 on some of the central findings of the IRIBA research.
They discussed how Brazil’s comparatively successful development performance over the last two decades has been based on a pattern of inclusive growth, that combined progressive social policy and increased labour market inclusivity with fiscal responsibility. However, such a ‘model’ as has existed has been a blend of “consensus and conjecture”, arising partly as innovative responses to particular historical circumstances. The seminar discussion also covered questions about the future of this development trajectory given the current political crisis.
